Session J: AAPT Tutorial on Anthropogenic Global Warming - Illuminating Some of its Scientific and Methodological Flaws

Laurence I. Gould, University of Hartford

Description

There continues to be an increasing number of scientists and public figures around the world who are challenging the claims that dangerous “global warming/climate change” (AGW) is caused primarily by human-produced carbon dioxide. This Tutorial (followed by handouts) will explain what is meant by AGW and will show that the weight of scientific evidence strongly contradicts the alarmist claims (such as those found in some recent issues of The Physics Teacher and Scientific American). It will also explain what are some of the methodological flaws, in the promotion of AGW, that continue to threaten the scientific method and, as a consequence, science education.
