Adjunct professor of applied psychology on climate change: ''Those who voted Green or Labor were simply more objectively knowledgeable about the phenomenon and the issue"

Climate-change denial feels the heat
''There's a powerful climate change signal in extreme weather events in Australia,'' said Joseph Reser, an adjunct professor at Griffith University's school of applied psychology. ''The current heatwave is outside people's experience.''

Results of a test about climate change also saw divergent results.

''Those who voted Green or Labor were simply more objectively knowledgeable about the phenomenon and the issue,'' he said. ''Our female respondents were generally more knowledgeable, more concerned.''

Psychology?

Expert in what, reading the bumps on your head? Or is that phrenology - same difference anyway.

Spare us from all these so called experts, this 'academic branch' is where it all began of course.

The Environmental industry, was borne out of the social science faculties of Britain and just before them, the American University campuses. Then morphed out of Environmental science came Climatology, 'son of' and wholly reliant upon statistical analysis, which any psephologist will tell you is all BS.
