Climate Change and Cultural Cognition
Are global warming deniers just uneducated or stupid? This paper examines two competing models of why people would dispute the conclusion of 97% of the world's climatologists. Is it simply a matter of lacking knowledge and critical thinking? This is a verbatim reading of sections of: Donald Braman et. at., "The Polarizing Impact of Science Literacy and Numeracy on Perceived Climate Change Risks", 2 Nature Climate Change 732 (2012). http://scholarship.law.gwu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1298&context=faculty_publications I encourage you to read the full results and discuss them in comments below. I found cultural cognition thesis to be a near-perfect fit for my own experiences on Youtube. Cultural cognition raises questions for me about my persuasive tactics to date, and I hope it does for you, too. More about cultural cognition here: http://www.culturalcognition.net/ My thanks to Dan Kahan, who brings this work to life in his many videos here on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZah9G-7vxw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJDBv7eldSU
