3 kinds of bias that shape your worldview

The TED Talk delves into the disparity between scientific consensus on climate change and public perception. It explores how belief systems and biases influence people's views on science, using examples such as confirmation bias, the Dunning-Kruger effect, and cognitive dissonance.

The speaker illustrates how individuals often seek out information that aligns with their existing beliefs, leading to misconceptions and misinformation about scientific topics like climate change. The talk encourages a more critical and informed approach to understanding science and challenges the audience to evaluate their own biases and sources of information.

Through personal anecdotes and scientific insights, the speaker advocates for expanding one's radius of understanding, emphasising the importance of addressing misinformation and fostering a broader appreciation for scientific consensus.
