Countering climate misinformation
Wednesday 29 September / 12.30pm – 1.30pm New Delhi / See event in my time zone
One of the greatest barriers to climate action is climate misinformation. Climate scientists have shown that humans are causing global warming yet little action has occurred to solve the climate crisis. The good news is there are ways to challenge perceptions and lower barriers to behavioural change. Join the conversation with Dr John Cook, postdoctoral research fellow with the Climate Change Communication Research Hub at Monash University, Dr Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Senior Lecturer/ARC Future Fellow in the School of Science UNSW Canberra along with Professor Ben Newell, Professor of Cognitive Psychology and Deputy Head of the School of Psychology at UNSW Sydney. Followed by a live panel discussion with Matthew England, Scientia Professor of Ocean & Climate Dynamics at the UNSW Climate Change Research Centre.
