Science Odyssey: Freeing Climate Change From Distortions

By Clay Farris Naff


Climate change has equaled or surpassed evolution as a scientific subject mired in political controversy. In this edition we learn how scientific recommendations and data have been distorted, and how the National Center for Science Education is responding. Full disclosure: Naff has written for and contributed to the National Center for Science Education in the past.

 In Part 1 we hear from their new climate science education advocate, Mark McCaffrey. In Part 2, we talk with Dr. Richard A. Muller. He's a physicist at the University of California at Berkeley who found reasons to doubt that the data in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's reports was being properly collected or presented. To clear up his doubts, he took on the monumental task of independently confirming the global land temperature records of the last 200 years. He and his team found that their data closely match the IPCC's.
