A friend clued me in that the prestigious Science Museum of Minnesota's blog seems to be largely written by Science Museum staff who don't appear to be up to speed on climate change science. I've been buzzing through Science Buzz and it is clear that some buzzers may not know how to find peer-reviewed science and scientific statements on climate change. Given that your project is funded by the National Science Foundaiton, it seems very important that your staff posters get up to speed on science.
So, I offer a few helpful links:
Climate scientists answering questions about climate science, at www.realclimate.org
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, at www.ipcc.ch
Climate literacy for educators and students, at www.climateliteracynow.org
Dr. Stephen Schneider's website on climate change science, at www.climatechange.net
As well, your staff may want to review the many statements authored by professional scientific bodies on climate change, including those of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, the American Meteorological Society....you get the idea.
It's a shame that the best science education institution in the state doesn't require that its Science Buzz staff get up to speed on cimate science.
