The psychology of climate change rejection
As an environmental management consultant over the past 30 years or so, and a practitioner in energy efficiency, climate change risk management, greenhouse gas management and sustainability, I, like so many others, have been frustrated by the lack of global action and agreement on greenhouse gas abatement mechanisms and policy. Even more than frustration, I have been fascinated and intrigued by a number of behavioural patterns in people who reject climate change science and the recurring questions in my mind: Why do some people reject the science of climate change?
I have come up with a number of thoughts and theories, some quite unusual. These will be presented over a number of posts.
