Article on Dissenter Arguments Inventory

This manuscript discusses the development of the Anthropogenic Climate Change Dissenter Inventory (ACCDI). Authentic dissenter messages were used to develop an instrument that gauges individual’s “buy-in” to misinformation. Through principal component analysis, messages divided into 5 separate types of dissenter messages. This information may be useful to educators attempting to build educational resources designed to inoculate students from misinformation.
