Pre-service science teachers have some information about carbon cycling and global warming. Their information level is so important to teach environmental issues and develop students' environmental awareness. In the study, the misconceptions held by 4th year pre service science teachers about carbon cycle and global warming was investigated. A total of 52 4th year pre-service science teachers participated in the study. A questionnaire consisted of 10 open ended questions was developed to test pre-service science teachers' conceptions about the key components of the carbon cycle and global warming. Results have revealed that pre-service science teachers have conflicting, scientifically incorrect ideas and many misconceptions relating to the subject.
