Skeptical Science and Climate Denial Crock of the Week in Finnish
Posted by Ari Jokimäki on December 29, 2009
With couple of friends we have started to translate the articles of John Cook to Finnish language, as we felt there’s not enough discussion available on the subject of denialist claims in our language. John’s article collection on the subject is the best available (in my honest opinion), so it is natural place to start. Here’s John’s announcement on the issue. So far there’s just a few articles translated, but we’ll keep adding them. My fellow-workers on this are Kaj Luukko and AJ.
We (Me, Kaj, and Tuomas Helin) have also started translating the Climate Denial Crock of the Week videos by Peter Sinclair. We do that by subtitles. Here’s the first one, Ice area vs Volume, with English and Finnish subtitles (use the up-pointing arrow in the lower left corner to select the language and turn the subtitles on/off). This first one was translated by Kaj Luukko. There are couple of others not yet incorporated to Peter Sinclair’s own videos, but they can be viewed here: The Big Mist Take translated by Tuomas Helin, and The “Temp leads Carbon” Crock translated by me. [UPDATE: as Kaj points out in the comment section below, the other two are also now incorporated to the Peter Sinclair’s videos, and are available at links given by Kaj below. Thanks, Kaj!]
Well, Finnish is a language for only small group of people (few millions), but perhaps some other, larger, languages get a boost from this. 🙂
