A Look Inside
|Title:||Nobody Tips a Scandiscope|
|Dimensions:||6" x 9"|

The Nobody Tips a Scandiscope Session guide includes:
- Story and its preamble, letting you in on Peter’s favorite characters and stories and most surprising takeaways.
- Story-specific questions, along with Peter’s answers, designed to promote thought and discussion. Facilitator tips help you extend the discussion.
- A facilitator’s guide to help you plan, organize and lead a group discussion.
Think about the emotions you felt while reading the story.
- What did you feel about the plight of climbing boys like Henry Haworth and why?
- Which bothered you more: that young children were forced up chimney flues or that regulations to ban the practice were ignored for the better part of a century?
Five main issues stalled the complete abolition of climbing boys for over 100 years:
- microeconomics of self-interest
- social stratification
- climbing boys were cheaper and more effective than early mechanical tools like the Scandiscope
- policies were easy to skirt
- denial there was a problem
With these in mind, discuss the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Identify as many forces of resistance as you can.
The story identifies social stratification as one reason why climbing boys weren’t easily replaced by a Scandiscope.
- What are the income inequality issues influencing the transition to a clean energy economy?
- Developing countries, like many in Southeast Asia and Africa, accuse already-industrialized, wealthy nations, like those in Europe and North America, of being responsible for loading the atmosphere with greenhouse gases over the past 200 years. How is this transnational wealth disparity (a form of global social stratification) a hindrance to facilitating an energy transition?
