Changing Climate Beliefs with Jenn Marlon and Bob Inglis

57 minutes

This episode, part of our season-long look at the unexpected stories and effects of climate data, features two conversations about what people believe about climate change and what causes them to change those beliefs. First, we talk to Jenn Marlon to get an update on the changing numbers in the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication’s Six Americas survey. Then, we talk to former Representative Bob Inglis, who very publicly changed his beliefs on climate change, and now works to convince other fellow conservatives to support action on climate change.
