NCSE's teacher ambassador program has operated under the catch phrase "turning misinformation into educational opportunities" or TMEO. But the M in TMEO can also refer to misconceptions. The program uses misconception-based pedagogy to inoculate students against the misinformation about climate change they encounter from sources such as the Heartland Institute and some fairly high-profile politicians, so either word actually works. And it's not simply that I can't decide which word I like best. There is a method to my madness and it has to do with the power the chimeric M provides when explaining the impact of our approach. Join me at the next Skeptics meeting and I'll let you in on the secret.

A talk for Bay Area Skeptics; the event is free and open to the public.
