Global Warming: Fact or Fiction?  

Media hype and doomsday scenarios have made it difficult to discern science from pseudoscience. This class will help uncover fact from fiction by observing predictions made by global alarmists and claims made by media outlets and comparing their claims to scientific sources. We will compare books and films from the pro and con sides and attempt to analyze them critically. The recent sensationalist coverage of the fires in the Amazon rainforest is one example of how politicians, celebrities, and the media can manufacture crises from false information.
