Climate and science denial….

I’m in a reading-and-watching phase at the moment – not much time for writing. Two videos I recently came across are so good that I’ve embedded them below; they are just really good at describing their topics about climate and science denial.

Yes, I know this is not directly about virology/ It’s about climate change (CC) and science denial but it very much indirectly impacts on the fields of virology. Some examples include…

  • virus transmission
  • imported infection disease
  • mass gatherings and disease
  • virus vaccines
  • viral immunology
  • emerging virus diseases
  • viral zoonoses
  • seasonal viruses

These videos are also important science communication tools for our everyday lives. Show your kids. I’ve bookmarked them as much for my own future reference as for yours.
