Ansholm2014: Climate change as a threat to the masculinity of industrial modernity

Ansholm and Hultman analyze opinion articles from climate deniers in Swedish media.

They describe themselves as marginalized, banned dissidents who feel themselves “forced” to fight the “religion” that is climate science.
