This week’s guest is the brains behind climate myth busting endeavors like Skeptical Science and Cranky Uncle. John Cook is a post-doctoral research fellow at the Climate Change Communication Research Hub at Monash University. He obtained his PhD at the University of Western Australia, studying the cognitive psychology of climate science denial. His research focus is understanding and countering misinformation about climate change. In 2007, he founded Skeptical Science, and more recently, authored the book Cranky Uncle vs. Climate Change, which combines climate science, critical thinking, and cartoons to explain and counter climate misinformation.
I hope you’ll check out both Cranky Uncle and Skeptical Science. Before you do, have a listen to my conversation with John Cook.
