Climate Science Meets a Stubborn Obstacle: Students
When the teacher, James Sutter, ascribed the recent warming of the Earth to heat-trapping gases released by burning fossil fuels like the coal her father had once mined, she asserted that it could be a result of other, natural causes.

For his part, Mr. Sutter occasionally fell short of his goal of providing Gwen — the most vocal of a raft of student climate skeptics — with calm, evidence-based responses. “Why would I lie to you?” he demanded one morning. “It’s not like I’m making a lot of money here.”

She was, he knew, a straight-A student. She would have had no trouble comprehending the evidence, embedded in ancient tree rings, ice, leaves and shells, as well as sophisticated computer models, that atmospheric carbon dioxide is the chief culprit when it comes to warming the world.

“It’s like you can’t disagree with a scientist or you’re ‘denying science,”’ she sniffed to her friends.

Gwen, 17, could not put her finger on why she found Mr. Sutter, whose biology class she had enjoyed, suddenly so insufferable

As more of the nation’s teachers seek to integrate (more like indoctrinate JB) climate science into the curriculum, many of them are reckoning with students for whom suspicion of the subject is deeply rooted..

1. This seems to be axiomatic. Why is this wrong?

“It’s like you can’t disagree with a scientist or you’re ‘denying science,”’ she sniffed to her friends.

2. Because 2 scientists regularly come up with 2 different conclusions.

Scientists have a habit of being wrong - being wrong is part of the process of finding truth and fact.
