Abstract

Self-interest and ignorance is often identified as the motivation for climate change scepticism by those concerned with developing policy to adapt to it. However, a study of social justice in rural water reform has found that competing types of knowledge ('local' and 'scientific') are at the core of opposing views on the impacts of climate change. This means that scepticism can only be addressed by integrating local knowledge into scientific advice, through three way communications of scientists, policy makers and landholders.
