Crossing the Climate Change Divide

Meera Subramanian

Back to "Fall 2019" courses

The effects of climate change are here, now. Yet Americans are divided on this singular issue. Or are they? While media portray climate change debates as binary, fact-averse conservative denialists vs. Green-New-Deal leftists, the reality is that all Americans are experiencing changes in their own backyards. Journalist and Visiting Professor Subramanian traveled across the country collecting climate change stories told by conservative farmers, ranchers, dogsledders, evangelical Christians, and others. We’ll explore why facts alone can fail and how political, economic and religious beliefs shape the climate debate for people far from academia.
