Teaser – A Historic Series Of Interviews At The AGU 2014 Fall Meeting

Ventures Into Scepticism

Real Sceptic has its origins as a companion site for the videos produced by Collin Maessen. The site has progressed beyond this original purpose and now predominantly includes articles that are independent of the content released on YouTube. However this original content is still an important part of the site.

This page serves as an archive for videos produced and released on YouTube. You can find full transcripts, source listing and used media files for the videos. We are currently in the process of transcribing all the audio.

Please note that the first nine videos are of a substantial lower quality than videos that were produced after these. As these first nine videos were as much, and in some case more, about learning to edit videos and learning how to tell a story in sound and images.

Video description

This year the opportunity presented itself for me to visit the AGU 2014 Fall Meeting. During the AGU Fall Meeting I had the honor of working with Peter Sinclair of Climate Denial Crock of the Week and John Cook of Skeptical Science, interviewing an amazing line-up of scientists and science communicators.  I’m floored by who we interviewed and could have a chat with. You can find a list of the people interviewed at the Fall meeting here:



Interviews filmed in collaboration with University of Queensland and Skeptical Science. Full interviews available April 2015 in 'Making Sense of Climate Science Denial'.

Camera B interview footage provided by Peter Sinclair of Climate Denial Crock of the Week and Yale Climate Connections.
