distinguishing science from pseudoscience climate change

Part A: Video #1 – PBS: Climate of Doubt https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/film/climate-of-doubt/

Watch from start to around 7:20 – background
Watch from 15:20 to 21:50 – manipulation of data, “going down the up escalator” and the Oregon Petition
Watch from around 36:55 to about 44:45 – North Carolina climate change legislation on sea level rise and discussion of use of tactics used by the tobacco industry in claiming second-hand smoke is not harmful; oil industry ties

Give two examples from the Climate of Doubt video that illustrate how the media may help promote or help refute pseudoscience. (4 points)
How do the skeptics “diminish the credibility of the scientific consensus” and “spread the message of doubt?” Include analysis of “going down the up escalator” and the Oregon Petition as pseudoscience. (6 points)
