Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden: Seeks to explore 'connections between conservatism, xenophobia, and climate change denial'
A study of climate change denial”, is now collecting the world’s foremost researchers in this area. In the project, the network will examine the ideas and interests behind climate change denial, with a particular focus on right-wing nationalism, extractive industries, and conservative think tanks.
“Climate change is an existential question for all society. We have these insights, but we come into conflict with them. Therefore, it is important to understand the mechanisms behind different forms of climate change denial, and how this influences the debate and political decisions,” says Associate Professor Martin Hultman, from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.
