Ending the Silence on Climate Change, a Bill Moyers interview with Anthony Leiserowitz that first aired on PBS Jan. 4, will be shown at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on March 19 at 4:30 pm.
Leiserowitz is Director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication and a Research Scientist at the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Yale University. He is a widely recognized expert on American and international public opinion on global warming, including public perception of climate change risks, support and opposition for climate policies, and willingness to make individual behavioral change.
Ending the Silence on Climate Change introduces the concept of “Global Warming’s Six Americas.” These six distinct audiences within the United States – Alarmed, Concerned, Cautious, Disengaged, Doubtful, and Dismissive – each respond to the issue of climate change in different ways. Leiserowitz’s research asserts that in order to combat global warming, the groups should be communicated with differently.
The free screening will be followed by a discussion.
The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42 in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
