This week on Sea Change Radio we hear from noted environmental journalist, Andrew Revkin, about a recent Yale/Utah State surveyand mapping project designed to capture American attitudes about climate change and related policy. With thirty years covering science and environmental issues for the New York Times under his belt, Revkin has a distinct perspective, one he uses to analyze the language and the findings of the study. He and host Alex Wise talk about whether the poll results signal a hopeful sign, how the environmental debate does and does not fall along the red/blue divide, and how political rhetoric shifts depending on the audience.
