O’Neill, SJ, Boykoff, M (2010), Climate denier, skeptic, or contrarian?. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 107 (39) E151-E151.
Assigning credibility or expertise is a fraught issue, particularly in a wicked phenomenon like climate change—as Anderegg et al. (1) discussed in a recent issue of PNAS. However, their analysis of expert credibility into two distinct “convinced” and “unconvinced” camps and the lack of nuance in defining the terms “climate deniers,” “skeptics,” and “contrarians” both oversimplify and increase polarization within the climate debate.
