For Fact’s Sake podcast: Why is climate denial still so common?

Scotland and the Climate Crisis banner

This week, The Ferret has been separating fact from fiction around climate change in our series, Scotland and the Climate Crisis.

But false narratives are being pushed on social and more traditional media everyday, with hashtags like #ClimateScam being used on thousands of posts promoting climate denial and junk science.

With the consequences of climate chage becoming more apparent, why is climate change scepticism so popular, and is it even increasing?

In a special episode of For Fact’s Sake, we asked Mikey Biddlestone, a researcher from University College London, about how climate conspiracy beliefs develop, and why they might even be more likely as the effects of climate change become more obvious.
