The alternative reality of climate skeptics

Most people trust science and scientists. So what do you do if you
don't want to believe mainstream climate change science? In this talk,
I will describe how climate skeptics have constructed an alternate
reality to believe it.  In this way, the debate over climate change
turns into a debate over which reality should be believed. And
people can choose to believe the reality that fits in with their
preferred worldview.
