A climate of desperation

When it comes to the public dissection of climate denialism, there is little to beat Peter Sinclair’s series of short videos titled “Climate denial: crock of the week”.

I am a science writer by trade, which seems a bit of a waste now that people are increasingly turning away from reading in long form, preferring instead the ‘associative thinking’ of web-based reality, and to immerse themselves in a multimedia world. This is of course a fancy way of saying that moving pictures is pretty much all that such people can cope with, and ideally no more than 10 minutes at a time, so as not to overly tax an ever decreasing attention span.

Peter Sinclair is a better science communicator than I can ever hope to be, and I would raise my hat to the man, if ever I wore such a ridiculous thing.
