Anthony Leiserowitz interviewed by Bill Moyers

ENVS alum Anthony Leiserowitz appeared on Moyers and Company recently to discuss the current state of climate change communication. In the course of the interview, Leiserowitz touches on his idea that there are six different American publics when it comes to climate change, emphasizes that mobilization on climate change must come from the bottom up, and examines why the Republican Party has backed away from addressing climate change solutions over the past four years. He explains why, in his view, “You almost couldn’t design a problem that is a worse fit [than climate change] with our underlying psychology.” Ultimately, Leiserowitz says, we need to work on depoliticizing the issue of climate change so that it’s no longer about identity politics.
