The article focuses on teaching both sides on global warming as part of education in evolution. It states that there are several ideas and reasons on global warming and in part, activities done by people have added to climate change. The changes in temperatures may reportedly be due to natural causes and small changes in temperature do not have to cause alarm among scientists. According to the author, many oppose to a teach-both-sides approach because it could give undue credibility to the skeptic's position.
