Climate change? - There's no such thing!
A foyer talk about the dangers of hostility to science in times of climate crisis
Conspiracy myths, fake news, »alternative facts« - scientific findings are increasingly being targeted and
and turned into their opposite. This hostility to science is particularly evident in the example of climate change: although the overwhelming majority of scientists confirm that climate change is man-made, self-proclaimed »climate skeptics« try to cast doubt on research and prevent climate protection measures. In Thuringia, too, there are regular protests against the construction of wind turbines - some of them supported by the AfD.
What are the dangers of anti-science? And how can these efforts be countered?
We will discuss this with
