Why Climate Change Denial Is Just Hot Air

[From Slate]

Of course, cognitive dissonance will play a role here; the reason for such stats could not be because the counter argument is unfounded and unrealistic with what we know and understand of chemistry and the physical world, instead there is a global conspiracy out to undermine the “truth”

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.

    Living in a place where the weather maps had to incorporate 2 new colours (pink and purple) to show a degree of heat previously unfathomable (50C+) is a most disturbing thing to have to contemplate…even in Tasmania, the home of the beige 20 something summer temperatures we are experiencing heat waves, dry conditions and multiple bushfires…this piece has nothing to do with temperature and everything to do with science being given its rightful place in mainstream society rather than co-opted by big business…science belongs to the people! If you hadn’t read it, I thought that it might be something that you were interested in.

      Yes the news about your Aussie bushfires is terrifying. There was a piece on the telly about sheep having no grass to eat after it had been burned away.

      Thank you for that link. I hope to find time to read it.
