On Season 2, Episode 10 of Hyperlink Radio, it’s Part 2 of our two-part special on climate change. Host David Grabowski walks us through the underlying issues of the climate change crisis. To get to the bottom of things, David is joined by Dan Kahan—the Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Law & Professor of Psychology at Yale Law School and head of the Cultural Cognition Project. Much of Dan’s research has focused on the political polarization around climate change and getting to the root of why it exists. The answers will probably surprise you.
David also chats with Valerie Bane—she’s the Chapter Leader for the Sacramento Chapter of Citizen’s Climate Lobby, a nonpartisan group that advocates for political climate action through a measure called Carbon Fee and Dividend. Valerie explains what that is and why it might be the best bipartisan solution for lowering emissions in America.
The movement to fight climate change may be the most important period in human history. If you’re a concerned citizen, this is the episode for you!
Don’t miss out on Part 1 if you haven’t heard it yet.
