With so much information and misinformation, it can be difficult for teachers to calmly and scientifically discuss topics such as GMOs, climate change, evolution, etc.  In contrast to the current atmosphere of scientists ridiculing "science deniers", it can be much more productive to take a more respectful approach, showing people techniques to help them sift through the flood of information to find the real science.  This includes simple methods for fact checking, how to decipher a scientific journal article, and red flags that indicate you should dig deeper in your fact checking.
