(by NCSE Deputy Director Glenn Branch)

Dear Friends of NCSE,

A brand-new documentary on climate change denial is now available on-line.

CLIMATE OF DOUBT ON-LINE

Climate of Doubt, the Frontline documentary on the promulgation of
climate change denial that aired on October 23, 2012, is now available
on-line. The documentary focuses on how, over the last four years,
climate change deniers mobilized, framed their tactics, and undermined
public and political acceptance of the global scientific consensus on
climate change. Climate change education receives a passing mention:
"Beyond Washington, in wave after wave, the skeptic tactic of fighting
scientific warnings with doubt and delay was finding success.
Tennessee passed a law allowing the views of climate change skeptics
to be taught in schools." (Similarly, although unmentioned, Louisiana
passed such a law in 2008, and South Dakota adopted a resolution in
2010 calling for "balanced teaching of global warming" in the state's
public schools.) Along with the documentary itself, Frontline is also
providing a transcript, extended interviews with people featured in
the documentary, and a timeline on the politics of climate change.
