Talking about global warming with those who think it is not happening can sometimes be awkward or frustrating, especially at the holiday dinner table. However, there are often more points of agreement than we may realize.To provide some guidance on constructive ways to talk to people with opposing climate change viewpoints, we analyzed the Yale AP-NORC Environment Poll, a survey conducted among the American public (ages 18 and over) by the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research late last year.

Since Thanksgiving week last year, over 4,000 people and organizations have thanked each other through the hashtag #ClimateThanks and reached almost 70 million with their message. There was much to celebrate last year - from new government action, to the largest climate march in history, to countless efforts by individuals, organizations, and businesses to reduce carbon emissions. We are filled with gratitude for the many people who participated in this campaign: a huge #ClimateThanks to you for contributing to progress on creating a safe climate. Please continue to give #ClimateThanks whenever the spirit moves you, the hashtag is not going away!Media Outreach Projects Blog Post Format Climate Notes Projects Outreach
On September 21, 2014, a team of students with the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication joined over 310,000 people in the streets of New York City for the People’s Climate March, to voice support for a safe climate. The march was an exuberant and colorful display of diverse voices united in common cause. Our students conducted 167 interviews of marchers and documented in photos and audio recordings what messages were being communicated and why. Today we're releasing their report, which presents the major themes they observed and heard from the demonstrators.Attitudes & Beliefs Outreach Projects Format Reports Projects Outreach Tags Qualitative Research Topics Beliefs & Attitudes

“Climate Connections,” a new national radio program now on the air, shares daily stories about how climate change is affecting life in North America and what individuals and groups are doing about it.
The stories will help listeners ”connect the dots” between climate change and energy, extreme weather, public health, food and water, jobs and the economy, national security, the creative arts, and religious and moral values, among other themes.
The series, consisting of 90-second episodes, is edited by Bud Ward, a veteran environmental journalist and longtime editor of the Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media (now Yale Climate Connections), and hosted by YPCCC Director Anthony Leiserowitz.
