    How Fear Drives Climate Change Denial

    Surrendering to fear brought us climate change denial and President Trump; I propose that people take indefensible positions like climate denial and Trump support simply out of fear

    “…What continually befuddles people who work on climate change is the vehement and indefensible denial of evidence by a small segment of the population…I find [denialist arguments] fall into a few broad categories. Some of them are just plain false…like: There was a halt to global warming starting 1998…Humans are only responsible for a tiny fraction of the greenhouse gases…Scientists are colluding to create this fraud…Others are not false but are completely irrelevant. For example: Climate is always changing…We didn’t have thermometers a million years ago to measure global temperatures…Cities are hotter than their surroundings…[I am convinced the vast majority of people] are not intentionally being incorrect…In a sane world, everyone would understand the threat of climate change and our ability to take meaningful action…[The reason they don’t isn’t religion, political ideology, lack of scientific knowledge, politics, or tribal identification.
