Great article! Similar issues are playing out in Australia with contested media narratives on extreme weather events and their attribution to climate change; presently bush fires, after mass coral bleaching in 2016 and 2017. I note some parallels in your findings with our study in the Great Barrier Reef published earlier this year: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41558-019-0504-y
Thanks for sharing!
Cool article - thanks! I wonder, is there a relationship between this phenomenon and that described by Dunning & Kruger (re: actual competence and self-assessed competence)?
When I think about the Great Barrier Reef, I always have a beautiful picture of nature in my mind.
Me too! There is still a great deal of beauty to see and experience, and it contributes to our well-being.
