Joint Seminar: The alternative reality of climate skepticism

While scientists overwhelmingly believe that climate change is a reality, many people remain unconvinced by the research and data. In this talk, I will describe how climate skeptics construct an alternate reality of climate science where the Earth is not warming, humans are not to blame, etc. This alternate reality is then used to justify not taking action to address climate change. In this way, the debate over climate change turns into a debate over which reality one chooses to believe.
