The challenge posed by human-induced climate change to society and the natural environment has been summarized by thousands of studies and reports. As the scientific evidence builds, however, public and political opinion remains sharply divided along ideological, socio-economic, and religious lines. Understanding the reasons that have created and fed this polarization is crucial to the success of outreach efforts that attempt to bridge this divide. By identifying each of these barriers, Katherine Hayhoe will share how it is possible to bypass much of the “he said-she said” stalemate in media, transitioning instead towards positive action based on a foundation of shared values and concerns.
