This project on “Climate Denial in Brazil” is coordinated by Carlos R. S. Milani and counts upon the participation of Dr. Ruth Mckie (De Montfort University, UK) and assistant researcher Janaina Pinto. As part of the network entitled “The Climate Social Science Network”, Brown University (USA), this project aims to map relevant networks, organizations and leaders in the broad political field of climate denial in Brazil, answering questions such as: what are the main networks? How are they organized? What are their transnational connections? Are there any relationships between religion and climate denial in Brazil? What would be the profile of the scientists who participate in these networks and organizations? The first phase of the study is structured around interviews with agents from the Brazilian environmental field. The second phase, still in preparation, will be oriented towards a direct study with leaders and organizations in the field of climate denial in Brazil.
