Climate Change Communication and Scepticism

This research was initially funded by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and is now supported by the School of Psychology. It has involved public survey work and laboratory experiments to understand how the public perceive and process information about climate change. There has been a particular focus on the forms of uncertainty and scepticism expressed by the public, and the reasons for and impacts of this uncertainty and scepticism.
