Summary The consensus of the world's science academies, reached after a series of annual conferences, is that climate change is real, and that it's caused by human activity. Why, then, do so many people doubt these findings? In this program Nobel Prize winner Paul Nurse seeks to understand what may be the greatest amount of suspicion of the scientific community since the Dark Ages. Nurse goes head to head with climate change skeptic Fred Singer, and takes on the misinterpreted "Climategate" emails that ignited a firestorm of denier outrage. Nurse also talks to a man with HIV who does not believe the virus causes AIDS, and examines wariness of genetically modified foods. The role of the media in politicizing research and evidence is also considered
