  1. Those who enjoyed this might also enjoy some other informative stuff about climate change denial:

    The ingenious ways we avoid believing in climate change, by George Marshall

    See also Naomi Oreskes’ book, Manufacturing Doubt, which is about how the denial industry is funded:

    Naomi Oreskes also has a few really good lectures on YouTube about this subject.

    There’s also an excellent set of videos produced by climate blogger Peter Sinclair (aka Greenman3610) (www.climatecrocks.com). You can see the whole list here: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=029130BFDC78FA33

    On understanding the psychology of climate denial a bit more, there’s also this book (which I’ve bought but not read yet): Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions, and Everyday Life, by Karie Norgaard (http://goo.gl/W4gBm – Amazon.co.uk)

    And don’t forget to check in with these excellent climate blogs:
    Real Climate (http://www.realclimate.org/),
    Climate Progress (http://thinkprogress.org/romm/issue/) and
    Skeptical Science (http://www.skepticalscience.com/). T

    he latter in particular has an excellent list of debunked denialist “arguments”: http://www.skepticalscience.com/argument.php

    Anyway, I hope these resources prove interesting/useful and apologies for posting so many links all at once.

    Cheers,

    Luke

  2. Thanks, Luke, for the links! I have “Merchants of Doubt,” and so far it’s great.
