During the ABC documentary titled "I Can Change Your Mind About ... Climate" Nick Minchin and Anna Rose participated in an attitude survey. The surveyor then provided some analysis of "typical" results and the psychological bases for those results.

Minchin asked why "alarm" seems to have backfired into a rising amount of doubt and skepticism. Psychologist stated that "fear is not a sustainable emotion".
