Product description

Product Description

Why is it that despite overwhelming evidence and fundamental science, some people still don't accept that climate change is real and that human activity is contributing to it?

Is it because the science is not being understood? Is it because it is difficult to accept that humans are capable of changing the climate? Is there a link between climate change scepticism and ideology? Is there a link between the belief in the science and belief in God?

If you know anyone who challenges the science of climate change - or completely denies it's happening at all - then this book is for you, and for them. Don't worry, your friend is human after all, and such behaviour can be explained. A Climate for Denial gives a summary of the reasons your friend is a sceptic.

'This thought provoking book shines a light on a range of reasons why people don't appreciate the urgency of the changes required.' - John Connor, CEO, The Climate Institute

An easy to read exploration of the possible reasons for the irrationality of the supposedly 'rational animal' when faced with the overwhelming evidence of anthropogenic climate change. Starts with a brief run down of the major evidence and then delves into the 'whys' and 'hows' of climate change denial; how can seemingly intelligent people accept scientific evidence for somethings and not for others! Followed by uplifting information about some of the actions that can be taken at a grass roots level, to start the clean up.

Arek Sinanian has written an important book that deals with how we can deal with climate change denial. Far too many people are still denying the fact that we have anthropogenic climate change and are blocking efforts to become more sustainable as a society. What I found particularly interesting in his book is that Arek goes into the psychological reasons for denial, like the need to belong, cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias and disconfirmation bias.

I also liked how Arek talks about people disliking the solution rather than not accepting the science of climate change. People evaluate scientific evidence based on whether they view its policy implications as desirable. If they don't, they tend to deny the problem even exists. "The cure can be more immediately threatening than the problem". Arek gives his readers many ideas about how the solution can be made easier. He talks about global and national leadership, but also about individual actions that will help combat climate change, like energy efficiency measures for our transport, heating and cooling needs and switching to renewable energy.

This is a timely and thought-provoking book from an extremely experienced professional in the field. While it specifically examines climate denial, it is relevant to the broader issue of today: the confusion between opinion and fact. Sinanian's personal and conversational writing style is refreshing and engaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL BALANCED, EASY TO READ, CLEAR AND THOROUGH EXPLANATIONS. SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING 17 May 2017
By J. Kaye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A tour de force.

Engaging, easy to follow, clear and logical explanation, including the history of global warming and its study, the causes of warming, what greenhouse gasses are, and the politics, psychology and need to belong that can drive denial.

Balanced, non blaming, non haranguing.

This book should be on the reading list of educators, policy makers, politicians, the media, the general public. Even climate change scientist and environmental consultants could benefit from reading this little gem - they will know as much or more about the science, I am sure, but it could be used as a model to explain it to others, and also gives insight into the thinking of the naysayers.

Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful 10 April 2017
By Jeremy West - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I thought this book explored and explained the common human motives for ignoring, or denying and not being appropriately interested and concerned about significent and menacing issues going on in our society. The explanations I think apply to many issues besides climate change.
It is very apolitical which should make it appealing for many because we need apolitical processes to deal this this pressing issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars A clear vision of the truth about Climate Change Denial 24 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
In this time of Trump and Brexit, this is a fascinating study of reasons for Climate Change denial. But more than that, it gives one a clear understanding in a very succinct way of the entire picture past, present and future of the world and the implications of the huge problem facing humanity. One piece of optimism I took away from this book was that the typical profile of the "Denier" pretty well matched Donald Trump ! So as time goes by these deniers will disappear and the sooner the better! The young understand and embrace the fact that this is science not speculation. Very readable and informative, a clear vision of the truth about Climate Change Denial.

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A well-informed, accessible and thought provoking presentation of the perspectives of climate change denial. It invites each of us to consider how we might begin to make a difference beginning at a personal level in our day to day lives. If there is one book to be read by those who question the need to be better informed and actually 'do' something about cIimate change, this is it.
