I've just stumbled upon a really nice short read that provides tools and strategies for discussing issues for which scientific evidence exists but 'anti-science' folks try to de-bunk. It discusses 'the backfire effect' and the psychology of how people learn.
It's called The Debunking Handbook and should be of interest to anyone interested in evidence-based communication and in creating a dialog about the future.
Happy Groundhog Day to all! Phil saw his shadow: 6 more weeks of (spring-like) winter for north americans!
