Study in the journal ‘Australian Feminist Studies’ uncovers ‘a climate of misogyny’ with ‘climate denial’ spreading from ‘older White men’

Cover image for Australian Feminist Studies 

Statistician Dr. Matt Briggs analyzes wacky new paper: A paper in the journal Australian Feminist Studies titled “A Climate of Misogyny: Gender, Politics of Ignorance, and Climate Change Denial – An Interview with Katharine Hayhoe” by Sophie Bjork-James and Josef Barla. Yet this paper is a catalog of feelings of these three people—transcribed from a Zoom call! Which, I suppose, is precisely what a paper in a feminist journal should be. …

According to her official bio at Vanderbilt, co-author Sophie Bjork-James “has engaged in long-term research on both the US-based Religious Right and the white nationalist movement.” Sophie Bjork-James starts us off: “We find it striking that many of the voices downplaying or denying the reality of climate change are also those who forcefully oppose gender equality.”

Katharine Hayhoe says “research has shown”—research!—“that climate denial is not exclusively but predominately a male-dominated area and it is usually older White men.”

ABSTRACT: “In this interview, climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe discusses with Sophie Bjork-James and Josef Barla: the issue of gender inequality in the natural sciences; the toxic entanglement of right-wing extremism, sexism and anti-science rhetoric in discourses on climate change; the far-reaching institutional and social consequences of the Trump administration’s attacks on climate science research and advocacy; as well as the politics of ignorance and promising ways to rebuild trust in shared values and a shared world in the face of multiple planetary crises and challenges from climate change to biodiversity loss to the rise of far-right extremism.”
