Anna Rosling Rönnlund, co-author of Factfulness, explains why a data-driven factfulness framework for climate change is vital.

The growing complexity of data and our own cognitive biases often produce gaps in our understanding of the world and in the arc of socio-economic progress. Anna Rosling Rönnlund, co-author of New York Times-bestseller, Factfulness, talks about how these biases impede our ability to develop a fact-based worldview. We also discuss why a factfulness framework for climate change is vital, what building it requires and what it might look like.
