Présentation de l'éditeur

Humans have always used denial. When we are afraid, guilty, confused, or when something interferes with our self-image, we tend to deny it. Yet denial is a delusion. When it impacts on the health of oneself, or society, or the world it becomes a pathology. Climate change denial is such a case. Paradoxically, as the climate science has become more certain, denial about the issue has increased. The paradox lies in the denial. There is a denial industry funded by the fossil fuel companies that literally denies the science, and seeks to confuse the public. There is denial within governments, where spin-doctors use 'weasel words' to pretend they are taking action. However there is also denial within most of us, the citizenry. We let denial prosper and we resist the science. It also explains the social science behind denial. It contains a detailed examination of the principal climate change denial arguments, from attacks on the integrity of scientists, to impossible expectations of proof and certainty to the cherry picking of data. Climate change can be solved - but only when we cease to deny that it exists. This book shows how we can break through denial, accept reality, and thus solve the climate crisis. It will engage scientists, university students, climate change activists as well as the general public seeking to roll back denial and act.

Biographie de l'auteur

Dr Haydn Washington is an environmental scientist of 35 years experience. Originally a plant ecologist, he worked in CSIRO on heavy metal pollution for 7 years and did his M.Sc in that field. He later did his PhD 'The Wilderness Knot' in social ecology, looking at the tangled meanings (and denial) around wilderness. He has worked extensively on environmental and sustainability issues. This is his fourth book on environmental issues, and he has been researching climate change since his 1991 book 'Ecosolutions'.

John Cook studied physics at the University of Queensland, Australia. After graduating, he majored in solar physics in his post-grad honours year. His interest in climate science began when he was given a speech by prominent 'skeptic' U.S. senator, James Inhofe. Researching the various skeptic arguments presented by Senator Inhofe revealed many fundamental scientific flaws. This led Cook to begin cataloguing the full range of skeptic arguments and documenting what the peer-review science said about each topic. This work formed the basis of the website which aims to communicate the peer-reviewed science to a broader audience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very instructive. 27 janvier 2013

A very interesting book about why some groups of interests have denied the climate change so far and what they could gain from it, although there is a scientific consensus about global warming.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A valuable resource for combatting climate change denial 2 octobre 2011
Par David J Kent - Publié sur
John Cook runs the web site "Skeptical Science" (SkS) where he "gets skeptical about global warming skepticism." The site has quickly become one of the most valuable sources of accurate information to debunk the false, and often intentionally deceptive, arguments put forth by the climate denialist industry. In "Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand," Cook has teamed up with environmental scientist Haydn Washington to further examine - and rebut - climate change denial.

The authors begin with the nature of denial and a short course in climate science. They then jump into what they call the five types of climate change denial arguments: conspiracy theories, fake experts, impossible expectations, misrepresentations and logical fallacies, and cherry-picking. They also review the history of denial and why it is that we let denial prosper. Finally, they end with two chapters on how to roll back denial.

The book, like the SkS web site ([...]), is a valuable resource for understanding and combating climate change denial.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Yes they wish it not to be true therefore they will not look i.e. denial. 30 mai 2011

This book I would highly recommend. Each foot note, study, and quote are referenced at the end of each chapter. The first part of the book has a good summery of climate science with the rest dealing with climate denial. It did a good job summing up types of denial, but its weakness (small) is it did not delve more into cognitive dissonance . I'm still in the dark about how {Relatively}intelligent people cannot just spend a few hours looking in journals like Nature & Science or look at the scientific organizations like AMS or National Academy Science and not come to the realization of the problems{In any field of science not just climate science}. Yes they wish it not to be true therefore they will not look i.e. denial. Anyway overall a very good read and informative about denial. A good follow-up on denial is Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts a very good book on cognitive dissonance.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent discussion of both climate science and denial 28 mai 2011
Par Dana A. Nuccitelli - Publié sur
Washington and Cook make a great team. Cook (of discusses the fundamental climate science, what we know and how we know it, with some good references. Washington discusses the various ways and reasons that so many people deny that fundamental science even though over 97% of scientific experts are in agreement about it. The discussion of denial in particular is very in-depth and interesting. I highly recommend the book.

But as with many books today, this one would have benefited from tighter editing--but my criticism may be too severe because that is what I do for a living: edit! Still I hate sloppy sentences, lost antecedents, and wandering content. But no one wants to pay for the extra read these days. Content is well done, and the team that produced this work is credible and on the cutting edge of climate change perception investigation.
