New Internationalist - Essential Guide

by Danny Chivers

Book Image Not Available
Overview
In this easy-to-read mini eBook, Danny Chivers presents the New Internationalist guide to debunking the myths of the climate change deniers. Sceptics are people who don't take things at face value; they demand facts, and are ready to change opinions based on the weight of evidence, even if that goes against personal preferences or beliefs. Deniers, on the other hand, refuse to accept evidence that conflicts withtheir personal beliefs, desires or ideology. People in denial gather reasons and excuses, however flimsy, that allow them to not believe in whatever unwelcome truth they're trying to avoid. This first in the New Internationalist series of mini eBook Essential Guides will help you understand the psychology of climate change denial, and will provide memorable tools for debunking the myths of the climate change deniers.
