Free. 6 weeks.
Tuesday, for me and some ten thousand classmates, was the first day of climate denial school.
Or, should I say, anti-climate denial school. We’d all signed up for Denial101x,
a new, six-week MOOC (that’s “massive open online course,” for all you
education luddites) aimed at making sense of this whole phenomenon — and
at giving us the tools to fight deniers, so that we can all get on with
fighting climate change itself.
Our professor is John
Cook, the Climate Communication Fellow for the Global Change Institute
at the University of Queensland and the founder of Skeptical Science, which over the past two years has been an invaluable resources for me, a newbie debunker of deniers.
