Very interesting linkage to the energy transition. Thank you. QUESTION: according to the definition of securitization “the selection of non-change” and “block something specific in a specific way”. Do you see this happing in Italy? I’m referring to the measures that have been taken to ‘control’ the spread of the covid pandemic.

what about the "common sense" that ppl always refer to when you try to correct them? isn't part of the problem the mistrust against science in general?
Douwe Truijens

Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us today. I'm missing one big step in your reasoning though, which is the relationship between conspiracy theory and being false. Kacper gave some examples of arguments that could be argued to tick (all) the boxes of the conspiracy theory definition, but does that automatically mean the arguments are false?In other words, is 'untrue' part of the definition of a conspiracy theory?

I would be interested to know if energy conspiracy theories have been relatively specific to what extent there are documented overlaps with other more commonly-known conspiracy theories? Thank you.

Question: How does stopping the spread of conspiracy theories relate to restrictions to free speech? How do you find a correct balance between these two?
Jeske Zonneveld

Kacper: do you know if the countereffect is also true? States (and maybe also big companies) 'need' securitization arguments to keep control. Do citizens experience more control as the energy transition develops? (Do to prosuming)
Wouter Mensink
01:09:00
Do either of the two speakers have insights as to whether proponents and opponents of the types of conspiracy theories you described interact with one another?
Thomas Hoppe
01:09:02
How is it possible that so many people believe conspiracy theories and so many people support those politicians using them? I believe in the US alone (among others) there are over 50 million people believing right-wing conspiracy theories.
Emanuele Bianco

Very interesting discussion. I would add that there is an active misinformation campaign conducted by incumbent energy companies too. Those can be the more dangerous.
Thomas Hoppe
01:11:27
And don't forget their role into financing research!

Anatol: could you perhaps say a bit about the study you will do in Holland? If this doesn't fit the current discussion, I would be happy to hear a bit more about it later!

A comment/question to Kacper. First of all, thanks for the informative presentation. The case of Nord Stream 2 project and how German left parties have been lobbying for this project is a good example to showcase that the problem is beyond simply attribute everything to the alt-right.
