Description - Cranky Uncle Vs. Climate Change: How to Understand and Respond to Climate Science Deniers by John Cook
CRANKY UNLCES VS. CLIMATE CHANGE combines humor, cartoons, and science to make sense of the public controversy about climate change. We all have a family member who thinks they know better than the world's climate scientists. CRANKY UNCLES delves into the psychology of why some people reject climate science, dissects the typical arguments your cranky uncle might use at family gatherings, and outlines how to respond to climate science denial. Guided by psychological research into how to communicate science and how to refute misinformation, it features a recurring Cranky Uncle character that epitomizes the older, white conservative male typically associated with climate science denial, an anthropomorphized (and understandably stressed out ) Earth, and an exasperated scientist. While following the science, CRANKY UNCLES also embraces a creative approach, using cartoons and visual analogies to make the science engaging and accessible to readers.
