10 ways to melt the heart and brain of a climate change denier #climate

Far too often in discussions with deniers, we end up on the defensive – trying to bat away a series of misleading claims and myths, rather than explaining what’s actually happening to the climate. Instead, try to be gently challenging – For professional deniers, ask them which bits of the basic science they disagree with. Do they not believe CO2 is a greenhouse gas, or that the planet is warming up? Ask them what evidence they have for any extraordinary claims that contradict 150 years of science and tens of thousands of temperature measurements. If they claim it’s not a big problem, give them some real-life examples of what floods, droughts and storms are already doing to people all over the world.
