February 14th, 2017 · No Comments

“Where’s the Global Warming?” thought Buffalonian; then they looked at a map

November 21st, 2014 · 1 Comment

The continental United States has been slammed by cold temperatures and it is difficult to escape images of Buffalo’s massive snowfall. When there is a big snowstorm, climate science deniers gleefully crow “Where’s Global Warming” and otherwise in a way that resonates with (sadly, too large) a segment of the population and is gleefully played […]

“Believe it or not, it is true”: A musical interlude on climate change (denial)

June 18th, 2014 · Comments Off on “Believe it or not, it is true”: A musical interlude on climate change (denial)

Communicating on science is difficult in American society. Tackling that communication in the face of concerted efforts to undermine science is an even more difficult challenge. Effective teachers use a variety of methods to communicate with their students, seeking to find ways to communicate to all of the seven types of learning.  For aural, we’re […]
