For first time Canadians join program that educates teachers on climate change

For the first time, Canadians are joining a program of Arctic and Antarctic expeditions created for teachers to collect stories, data and photographs that will help their students learn about climate change and the environment.

National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions have been sending American teachers to icy locations such as the Arctic, Iceland, Greenland and Antarctica since 2006 and applications were opened to Canadian educators for the first time this year. There were over 1,300 applicants, and three Canadians were amongst the 25 teachers chosen as Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Scholars.

One of the educators, Garrett Norman, is an outdoor education teacher with the Toronto District School Board. He returned just over a week ago from the Arctic, where he learned about ice floes, polar bears and documented evidence of climate change.

“It’s provided me with a whole lot of inspiration to bring environmental and geographical issues back into the classroom,” he said.

Mr. Norman will spend the summer months crafting lesson plans based on his experiences. Aside from the obvious links to ecosystems, climate change, food chains and geography, the 35-year-old educator intends to tie his trip to parts of the math curriculum.

“Things like calculating how much water is in a glacier,” he said.

Sven Lindblad, the owner of Lindblad Expeditions, started the program as a way to inject more natural sciences into the classroom. His company donates the seats on the expeditions -- which cost about $10,000 each, depending on the destination -- and a pre-voyage workshop at National Geographic headquarters in Washingston, D.C. is paid for through a variety of sources, including private donors.

Mr. Lindblad decided teachers were the best way to reach a younger generation, to teach them about the impact of climate change on polar regions without getting political. He is working to expand the program, and hopes to send 50 teachers on expeditions next year.

“Our generation, current adults, don’t seem to be willing to deal with these issues in a substantive way, you’ve got to put some significant bets on subsequent generations,” he said.

You got that right. What a joke. First it was global cooling and when that didn't pan out it was global warming and when that didn't pan out it was climate disruption and when that didn't pan out it was climate change and when that doesn't pan out they'll call it weather. No matter what they call it they want our money and our liberty.

The big joke here is that this is no more than a free trip offered by ideologues to a group of teachers that are anything but familiar with the core issues.

Really no different than the IPCC holding their conferences in hot tropical locations complete with plenty of cold drinks to discuss global warming.

Sad in many ways though, that the truthers are stooping to indoctrinating kids with lies and fabrications by virtue of taking advantage of instructors that are looking for a free trip somewhere

Thats what we have been trying to tell you.
After this course teachers will have to quit preaching global warming.

New York post also agreed with Obama's climate change speech.

Let's just hope they don't get stuck in all that ice during their brainwashing mision like the last lot of Warmist weirdos who went there last year and had to have people risking their lives to help them when they embarassed themselves by finding much more ice there that they thought there was.

Dipsh-t. I'll go over this one more time. The consensus is based on 97% of 32% of paper authors who believe in AGW. The other 66% take no stance on AGW.

Your consensus falls 2/3 short and remains a hypothesis.

The 97% Consensus is a Robust Result

Nevertheless, the existence of the expert consensus on human-caused global warming is a reality, as is clear from an examination of the full body of evidence. For example, Naomi Oreskes found no rejections of the consensus in a survey of 928 abstracts performed in 2004. Doran & Zimmerman (2009) found a 97% consensus among scientists actively publishing climate research. Anderegg et al. (2010) reviewed publicly signed declarations supporting or rejecting human-caused global warming, and again found over 97% consensus among climate experts. Cook et al. (2013) found the same 97% result through a survey of over 12,000 climate abstracts from peer-reviewed journals, as well as from over 2,000 scientist author self-ratings, among abstracts and papers taking a position on the causes of global warming.

In addition to these studies, we have the National Academies of Science from 33 different countries all endorsing the consensus. Dozens of scientific organizations have endorsed the consensus on human-caused global warming. Only one has ever rejected the consensus - the American Association of Petroleum Geologists - and even they shifted to a neutral position when members threatened to not renew their memberships due to its position of climate denial.

In short, the 97% consensus on human-caused global warming is a robust result, found using several different methods in various studies over the past decade. It really shouldn't be a surprise at this point, and denying it is, well, denial.


The Cook et al. (2013) 97% consensus result is robust

The 97% Consensus was a complete fabrication and proven to be such.

Hell, there were even lawsuits filed against the IPCC by researchers and scientists whose names were listed, but (somehow) never knew that they agreed.

... I really can't recall the last time that 'the consensus' was taken to Court for misrepresentation of the actual consensus

This is a completely fictional statement and you will never have any evidence to support it.

Don't even bother trying.

You got your proof. 97% of 23% of AGW convinced authors. Where do you think that came from? CO2 laden thin air?

Do you enjoy being lied to?

Facts hurt don't they.

No 97% Consensus. More alarmist propaganda debunked over and over.

He needs to believe! It is his life now. His religion.

Why do you think he posts thread after thread? He knows they are doomed.

BTW it's was proven using MIS-11 that the CO2/temperature corellation falls apart and they go their own way.

I'm still waiting on these debunking facts you speak so highly of.

So far we just have two fancy links with no content.
