Climate Change in the American Mind
Thursday, March 28
3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Room 2318 Rayburn House Office Building
Independence Avenue SW and South Capitol Street SW
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to a briefing discussing Americans' evolving perceptions of climate change. Americans have diverse and sometimes opposing views about climate change, which can fundamentally shape the political discourse around climate action. Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, the featured speaker, will explain recent trends in Americans' climate change knowledge, attitudes, policy support, and behavior and discuss strategies to build public and political will for climate action. He will discuss how voter attitudes towards climate change and clean energy influenced the 2018 mid-terms and may influence the 2020 election cycle.
