Responding to alternative facts in a post-truth world

In recent times, we have seen an increased prevalence of fake news with the public seeming to rely less on scientific evidence. How should scientists respond to these concerning trends? Several decades of research into climate science denial offers insights into the post-truth phenomenon – which displays the same kind of motivated reasoning as those who reject the scientific consensus on climate change. This talk will examine the psychological research into science denial – why and how do some people reject science and how might we respond?
