How to change the mind of a climate sceptic-12:45PM – 1:15PM, Thursday 03 May 2012

Anna Rose is co-founder and Chair of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition. Her new book Madlands: A Journey to Change the Mind of a Climate Sceptic tells the tale of her extraordinary journey with Liberal Party powerbroker Nick Minchin, which was also documented by ABC TV in the special I Can Change Your Mind About Climate. In our first Lunchbox/Soapbox for Programme Two, Anna discusses the rise of climate denialism both in Australia and globally, why the Australian media doesn’t discuss climate change rationally, what motivates the denialist elite – and how to change people’s minds!
