Climate Change

Mainstream criticism of people who deny climate change essentially portrays climate skeptics as being out of touch, ignorant or somehow incapable of understanding the facts about climate change. However, work by University of Kansas sociology doctoral student Jacob Lipsman examines alternative reasons for climate change denial, specifically economic, social or cultural influences on why individuals or entire communities remain skeptical of climate change.

Do you think that understanding alternative reasons for denying climate change could help bridge the divide?
