Frequently Asked Questions about the Science of Climate Change Stephen MacKinnon

Canadians frequently ask questions that indicate considerable public confusion about many aspects of climate change science.

Sara **** a great starting point, many students will have the same questions, allowing teachers to correct any incorrect r previous knowledge students may have had on the subject

DF - this would need an assignment to accompany the website - otherwise a bit of a "massive" body of text.

Greenhouse Gas Investigations DougFraser DF - This is a pretty \"hokey\" lab and not sure it if valid - far too many uncontrolled variables - I would not recommend this one. Also - this website requires the teacher to register/join FtF and become a \"member\" - do we want to include this? Not sure teachers will want to do this - I\'m always hesitant.

Science and Global Warming DougFraser This is a useful resource for teachers and students - it is rather lengthy and slow going so not useful as a primary resource for the classroom but it is quite thorough. It can be used as an overview of the evidence and why scientists and scientific organizations are convinced that AGW is happening.
