This webinar by science writer Michael Robin was hosted by Ag-West Bio as part of 2020 Global Biotech Week in Saskatchewan.  

Why do people embrace conspiracies and fiercely defend positions that go against decades of science-backed evidence? The consequences of disbelief threaten how we feed ourselves, protect public health and the Earth itself. This presentation explores creative ways to pierce the fog of misinformation when facts alone fail.

The Q&A begins at 29:15
