Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired To Ignore Climate Change
An engaging interactive event at the Holywell Music Room, Oxford on the 4th of November. You can get tickets here. George Marshall, Founder - Climate Outreach and Information Network spent the last two years exploring why, despite all the evidence, we still ignore climate change. His book Don't Even Think About It is the result of interviews with Nobel Prize-winning psychologists and the activists of the Texas Tea Party; the world’s leading climate scientists and the people who denounce them; liberal environmentalists and conservative evangelicals.
This is a ground breaking book that could reshape the way we engage with people on climate change.At the event we'll explore:
- Why do most people never talk about climate change?
- Why did scientists, normally the most trusted professionals in our society, become distrusted and hated?
- Why does having children make people less concerned about climate change not more?
Venue: The Old Music Hall, 106 - 108 Cowley Road, Oxford, OX4 1JE
