International Polar Year, or IPY (2007-2009) is by far the most exciting international scientific and educational opportunity of this century. For the next two years, all eyes will be focused on the physical, social and human dimensions of our planet's polar regions. Watch this blog for news related to Canadian outreach and education efforts related to IPY. Of particular interest to educators!

FW: [IPY_teachers:323] re: response to "Climategate"

Subject: [IPY_teachers:323] re: response to "Climategate"


Dear Andrillians and Friends of ANDRILL,

You have probably been hearing the "Climategate" flap and some of you have asked how to respond when confronted by "skeptics". It may seem hard to sort out myth from truth.
Oregon State University put out this list of resources for answering the main arguments with evidence.  I found it very helpful, so I thought I'd pass it on to you.
Another good resource is Real Climate: which lists both raw data and processed data.
And if you want SCAR's (Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research) latest science report on climate change research in Antarctica go to: (click on Antarctic Climate Change and the Environment).

Hope you find these sources helpful!
