Despite the fact that this show hasn’t aired yet, there is already a lot of discussion in the media regarding this documentary (including a post on this site). While it sounds like not much ground is actually made in the show to dispel the views of Nick Minchin, the climate sceptic, I for one am excited to see what the show has to offer.
I am a strong believer that in order to more effectively get our message across, we need to know what climate deniers believe, and why. We can’t just hit them across the head with a tree and tell them climate change is happening because we say it is (although sometimes I wish I could…). We need to be able to engage people where they’re at, understand what misinformation they are holding onto, and address those issues first.
“I can change your mind about… climate“. Tonight on ABC1, 8:30pm.
