Why People Don’t Believe in Climate Science

How do we wrap our brains around global warming?Why is it so hard to wrap our brains around global warming? –

It’s a hoax, it’s the sun, it’s scientists after grant money, it’s a play for world domination. Then there’s Al Gore, the favorite straw man for many climate change deniers. One thing is clear, facts don’t matter. A climate change narrative based solely on facts hasn’t worked and won’t work. Why is this?

In this video from It’s Okay to Be Smart, Joe Hanson explores why, even with continued and growing evidence, many people still don’t believe in climate science or think global warming is real, and why those who do aren’t doing much about it.
