We have had several people contact us concerning our expression "Climate Cognitive Dissonance"
, this has been used recently with the following CO2Sceptics article Climate change could be even worse than feared - yes, it's true!
UK Professor Emeritus of Biogeography, Philip Stott of the University of London highlighted this psychological condition in two of his articles, Cognitive Dissonance
and More On Cognitive Dissonance
and we simply added the "Climate" part as it seemed the appropriate thing to do, as far as some of the media are concerned.
We could have also mentioned the phrase "Man Made Climate Cognitive Dissonance" or "Man Made Global Warming Cognitive Dissonance", but we thought it was best to keep it headed as short as it could be, and who knows at a later time when this rather silly situation has come to a head with "Global Cooling" some brainy psychologist may even use the same term, lets all hope a lesson can be learnt from this event and it will be over soon.
At this moment in time regretfully, the media are still very keen to report that world temperatures are becoming warmer when in fact they are becoming cooler, and it's little wonder when you read these articles by Philip Stott, that it fits the psychological condition described.
