Science of Science Communication 2.0, Session 11.2: Wilner questions "consensus messaging" pedagogy for climate-science education along with her own previous views on teaching students to "believe in," not just comprehend, evolution...

I was so foolish to think that Science of Science Communication 2.0 had reached the end or at least the summer intersession!  

"Science communication honeybadger" Tamar Wilner,  having only appeared to have lapsed into a state of permanent unconsciousness after chomping off the head of the "belief vs. knowledge" viper in teaching evolution, suddenly awoke and started in chewing again, this time on whether "consensus messaging" is an effective/appropriate form of climate-science education for secondary school students.... Yow--she's fearless! 

Her appetite was so voracious, moreover, that she ended up devouring at least part of her own previous (qualified) endorsement of teaching students to "believe in" evolution.

See for yourself! 

And add your own witty voice-over commentary below but only if you are willing to reciprocate the contribution she is making to the class's refletive engagement with complexity.
