Description
Summary:"Drawing from a collection of interviews and surveys with self-identified climate change skeptics (and some former ones), sociologists Kristin Haltinner and Dilshani Sarathchandra delve into the underlying dynamics of climate skepticism in the United States. In probing how ideas about science, religion, politics, and media affect perceptions of climate change, they find a far greater diversity of attitudes and beliefs than one might expect-including some pro-environmental views. With a nuanced understanding of climate change skepticism, this book offers insights on improving communication in ways that can move us toward a better future while advancing environmental policies with widespread political support."--Nakladatelská anotace
