Mapping the evolution of climate change ‘scepticism’ in British newspapers since 1990

argylesock says… I wish you every success with your PhD, Martin. Your quote from James Hoggan is brilliant. ‘In promoting climate change denial… industry has done more than endanger the environment. It has undermined democracy.’

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.

    Thank you. My closing quote from Hoggan is one of may long-term favourites (and featured in my MA dissertation in 2011). However, I think my opening quote from Schneider, which is completely new to me, is even better as a simple statement of fundamentally-important (but poorly-understood) reality.

      Yes that one’s good too. But in my opinion, it uses too many long words for the typical reader. I’d prefer, ‘If you deny clear evidence, you’re not a skeptic. You’re spouting nothing but ideology. You’re a denier.’
