Abstract

While scientific consensus about human-caused climate change has been clear for decades, denial of this science and denial about the need for timely, responsive action continue in the United States and around the world. The Climate Denial Inquiry Model can help educators grapple with the complex components of this denial with critical literacy+ and eco-civic practices of deliberation, reflexivity, and counter-narration to help investigate climate denial texts, stories, contexts, and philosophies. This charts a pathway toward ecojustice-centered stories-To-live by.
