Study Shows Education And Facts Don’t Actually Matter To Republican Climate Deniers | ThinkProgress

Facts can only get you so far.That’s one of the lessons from new analysis out of the University of Queensland, which looked at dozens of studies and found that political leaning is more predictive for climate change denial than things like life experience or education.And despite the common conception that climate deniers are predominantly older white men, there actually is not a strong correlation by any other demographic but ideology, the lead author of the paper, psychology professor Michael Hornsey, told the Washington Post. “People higher in skepticism are more likely to be old, white and male – but the effects are so tiny you have to squint to see them. What really popped was people’s ideologies, political values, worldviews.”One might glean from these findings, published Monday in Nature Climate Change, that Republicanism is the leading cause of climate denial.
