Public perception of climate change remains deeply divided, despite a near-unanimous consensus among scientists that human-caused climate change is a reality. How can we strengthen public understanding of and belief in climate change?  

Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz is a widely recognized expert on public opinion and public engagement over climate change at Yale University. He works to understand risk perception and decision making in the American mind and joins The Franklin Institute’s Environmental Scientist Dr. Rachel Valletta for a deep dive into the political, psychological, and cultural factors that influence personal perceptions of climate change.
