Not everyone has the time, interest, or inclination to invest lots of time doing a deep dive to study climate science. But most of us can probably invest a half hour or hour to hear to do so.
Earlier in July, about 10 volunteers came together for a “Friendly Climate Science Educational Challenge” workshop. The main content of the workshop consisted of each of us taking turns reading out loud one chapter of the 10 chapters of the “Littlest Book on Climate – 10 Facts in 10 Minutes about CO2." Because each chapter only takes about 2-3 minutes to read out loud, this took about 30 minutes. We then discussed questions about the contents. And finally, we discussed ways to refine the process so that it could be repeated by others.
With a special thanks to all the participants from our July workshop, we have developed the following documents to help others hold their own little one-hour workshops to help further constructive adult education and conversations on this important topic. Using these two documents, interested persons should be able to host sessions with about 5-15 people. After each session, we encourage participants to complete a short online survey (the link is included in the handout) so that we can provide additional feedback to the little book authors.
The documents are available here:
