Examine tactics used by opponents of climate science, and their close similarities to those employed to promote Brexit and Trump.

The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas is back!

Before going mainstream in 2016, fake news was principally used to attack climate science.

Richard Milne (The University of Edinburgh) sets about busting those climate myths, showing how to dismantle false claims with logic and analogies – no expertise necessary!

You’ll examine tactics used by opponents of climate science, and their close similarities to those employed to promote Brexit and Trump, often by the exact same people.

Together, we will aim to kill fake news, before it kills the planet!
