According to new polling done by The Pew Research Center, only 35% of Americans feel that global warming is a serious problem, down from 44% of those surveyed in 2008. Only 36% feel that there is solid evidence that the earth is warming because of human activity, down from 47% in 2008.
More than ever, we need to think about the best way to mindfully reach out to individuals to engage them in meaningful dialogue about global warming.
Last week, through 350.org, 181 countries came together for the most widespread day of environmental action in the planet’s history. At over 5200 events around the world, people gathered to call for strong action and bold leadership on the climate crisis (check out the photos from 350.org climate change events).
What has worked best, in your personal experience, when talking with others about global warming?
