Can we change the minds of science deniers? Encounters with flat earthers, anti-vaxxers, coronavirus truthers, and others. "Climate change is a hoax--and so is coronavirus." "Vaccines are bad for you." These days, many of our fellow citizens reject scientific expertise and prefer ideology to facts. They are not merely uninformed--they are misinformed. They cite cherry-picked evidence, rely on fake experts, and believe conspiracy theories. How can we convince such people otherwise? How can we get them to change their minds and accept the facts when they don't believe in facts? In this book, Lee McIntyre shows that anyone can fight back against science deniers, and argues that it's important to do so. Science denial can kill. Drawing on his own experience--including a visit to a Flat Earth convention--as well as academic research, McIntyre outlines the common themes of science denialism, present in misinformation campaigns ranging from tobacco companies' denial in the 1950s that smoking causes lung cancer to today's anti-vaxxers. He describes attempts to use his persuasive powers as a philosopher to convert Flat Earthers; surprising discussions with coal miners; and conversations with a scientist friend about genetically modified organisms in food. McIntyre offers tools and techniques for communicating the truth and values of science, emphasizing that the most important way to reach science deniers is to talk to them calmly and respectfully--to put ourselves out there, and meet them face to face.… (més)

Worth the price of admission. The author has some good points and suggestions for working with the science-deniers in your life. The key to the book is the five common factors in denying science:
*cherry-picking evidence
*belief in conspiracy theories
*reliance on fake experts (and the denigration of real experts)
*committing logical errors
*setting impossible expectations for what science can achieve

The key message is to communicate, and communicate from a place of love and understanding and not hate. But keep communicating with those in your life. ( )

I found the author to be very entertaining, especially when he was talking about things like his attending a flat earther's conference. As far as my actually learning methods and techniques to use while conversing with science deniers, I didn't learn a lot.
It basically comes down to treating people with respect, empathy, listening to them and asking them "what about ....." questions. The same techniques I employed in my law enforcement career. I find dealing with inmates flawed views of the world to be very similar to those of science deniers. Absolutely sure of the correctness of their opinions, willing to shout down those who disagree with them, and grandstanding were their methods of being the "alpha" dogs. Very much like I see today in the science deniers.
After years of dealing with those type of inmates, I found it best to not take things personally, to do my best to maintain control of the situation, not get into a shouting match, and to, when possible, walk away. Eventually they will find out that they can't rule the world, and, if not pushed into a corner, come around to a more evolved position. ( )

Lee McIntyre’s book gives us a blueprint to talk to science deniers. If we follow 5e tips in this book, perhaps we can restore sanity in this country and begin respecting each other again.

McIntyre provides easy to understand tips on how to try and reach science deniers. He has a 5 step framework that he introduces early on. He then applies this framework to Flat Earthers, anti vaxxers, GMO deniers, and most importantly, COVID-19 deniers. If you’ve done a lot of reading into why people believe in the unbelievable, a lot of this stuff will be very familiar. But McIntyre helped me give a name to some thoughts I’d had about the science deniers in my own life. That’s where the book was valuable to me.

The people who need to read this are those who want to reach friends and loved ones. Some of the other reviews of this book will make it clear how big the challenge is. Without even realizing it, the negative reviews for this book will employ at least one tactic in McIntyre’s framework. They’re not going to be brought around by reading this. Instead, McIntyre coaches the science believers to listen to and try to respectfully rebut some of the flawed logic used by science deniers. It’s unlikely to work on most of them, but this book gives us something else to try.

I recommend this book to all. ( )
