In this research episode, we take a look at our American Climate Perspective Survey titled: Americans Feel Most Comfortable Talking About Climate Change With Friends and Family, with report co-author, Nicole Hill, MPH.
Many climate activists have been working for years to transform climate change into a kitchen-table issue, and new research suggests these efforts have succeeded. ecoAmerica’s latest report explores who Americans feel comfortable talking with about climate change, revealing that family and friends are at the top of the list. These conversations are important — engaging in climate conversations can create a positive feedback loop, resulting in further conversation. Talking about climate change can also help reassure people around you that they are not alone in their climate concern, as recent research shows.
