The Psychology of Climate Change: Why Do People Believe What They Believe?

This panel discussion will explore cutting-edge research on the psychology of climate change, and the reasons underlying people’s beliefs about the existence and causes or climate change, and attitudes toward climate policy and solutions. It is abundantly clear that a resort to scientific argument is largely ineffective in engaging people with issues of climate change. Rather, responses to climate change are shaped by a variety of social, political, and psychological factors that need to be understood and addressed if we are to move forward on this pressing issue. This panel will delve into the psychological dimensions of climate change, discuss their political and policy ramifications, and explore paths forward in a political environment showing no signs of bipartisanship.
