"The Alternate Reality of Climate Skeptics"

Dr. Andrew E. Dessler, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas

Abstract: Most people trust science and scientists. So what do you do if you don't want to believe mainstream climate change science? In this talk, I will describe how climate skeptics have constructed an alternate reality to believe it. In this way, the debate over climate change turns into a debate over which reality should be believed. And people can choose to believe the reality that fits in with their preferred worldview.
