Increasing Critical Thinking to Understand and Respond to Climate Misinformation with Dr. John Cook
From bchristiansen2 on April 2nd, 2020
We all have a cranky uncle, friend or colleague who has interesting "ideas" on scientific issues like climate change. How do you make sense of their arguments, and how might you respond? With the help of Dr. John Cook, cognitive scientist and author of the book 'Cranky Uncle vs. Climate Change', you will gain a new appreciation for the importance of critical thinking as both a resource and way of thinking. You will learn the fallacies in the most common climate myths, and how to detect reasoning fallacies in other arguments. Most importantly, you will come away empowered to talk about climate change, with newfound confidence in responding to potential climate misinformation.
