How the Public is Misled
Evolution and Global Warming Denialism
In the US, teachers have long been being pressured to eliminate the teaching of evolution or to teach "alternative views" – meaning creationism. Recently, they also are receiving pressure either to not teach global warming, or to teach "alternative views", such as that global warming isn't actually occurring, or that it is not anthropogenic. As with the arguments used by anti-evolutionists, global warming deniers propose their views in the spirit of “fairness”, or of teaching students critical thinking. The rhetoric and political techniques employed by global warming deniers have remarkable parallels to those employed by anti-evolutionists.
