why the denial?

Over this summer, Justin Catanoso, a journalism professor at Wake Forest University, was embedded with myself and other researchers of the Andes Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research Group (ABERG) as we conducted our field studies in the Kosnipata Valley of the Peruvian Andes.  He has just published the first in a series of reports based on his experiences and time with us.  In this first report, Miles Silman and I discuss some of the confusion over climate change and why climate change denialism persists in the USA.  You can find the article HERE.

A related article was also just published in the New York Times, discussing the ongoing and growing public denial of science.  You can find the article HERE.
