It's hard to come to terms with ideas, values and opinions that clash. For example if you're vegan you might deplore birds being killed, but you still want to get rid of those gross bed bugs. The real question is how does dissonance effect behavior?
In this episode Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke use the example of climate change to explore how we deal with and explain dissonance in our lives and beliefs.
