Great discussion on comprehension and science literacy

Check out this thread on my recent reading comprehension/science literacy post at The Galilean Library.   They’ve got some great comments and insights, and even caught one of my grammatical errors! I’m surprised there aren’t more.

The author nicely decomposes global warming into 5 separate “issues”, which helps clarify the interplay between science and policy.  I’ll post my comments there first and then bring it back here.

As a general rule, you should definitely be reading The Galilean Library.  It’s a fantastic resource for history and philosophy of science.  I wish I knew about it when I taught my seminar on science in society.
