John Cook, a regular contributor to the podcast and the mastermind behind SkepticalScience.com, along with Haydn Washington an environmental scientific have written the must read book: Climate Change Denial: Head in the sand:
The book examines the phenomenon of climate change denial. It looks at the many techniques of literal denial, where ‘skeptics’ deny the evidence for man-made global warming. It exposes denial within governments, who make a lot of noise about climate change but fail to back it up with action. And it examines the denial within most of us, when we let denial prosper. This book explains the climate science and the social science behind denial.
Climate change can be solved – but only when we cease to deny that it exists. This book shows how we can break through denial, accept reality, and thus solve the climate crisis. It will engage scientists, university students, climate change activists as well as the general public seeking to roll back denial and act
As I mentioned on the podcast, Amazon.ca hasn’t shipped my copy of the book just yet. But if John’s past work is any guide, this book will be phenomenal. So go buy the book, though maybe not from Amazon.ca.
