Is Donald Trump good for climate change?

Public lecture University of New Brunswick, Tilley Hall Auditorium 

George Marshall is an internationally respected author and researcher on climate change communications and Director of Projects at Climate Outreach. He will give a one-hour lecture at Tilley Hall auditorium, University of New Brunswick on October 3 at 7 p.m. The lecture will be followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers.

George will also explore the dynamics behind climate denialism and situate his research and popular book (Don’t Even Think About It: Why Our Brains are Wired to Ignore Climate Change) in the context of current US climate denialism under President Donald Trump. Donald Trump has called climate change a hoax and announced the US withdrawal from the UN Paris climate agreement. At the same time, US actions have caused a surge in climate activism. In this entertaining and thought-provoking talk, George will share tips on how to talk about climate change with people who disagree with us.
