Reinventing Climate Change
Climate policy is broken. A huge part of the problem is the way climate change and the policies intended to address it are framed and communicated. Pragmatic and tangible options for tackling climate change are often overlooked in a contentious debate focused on climate change deniers, symbolic actions like opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline, and overheated rhetoric about a coming climate apocalypse. This tired narrative seems to have accomplished little beyond breeding cynicism and apathy across a broad swath of the global public. How do we enlarge and enrich this conversation, and take pragmatic steps toward a positive future? Can we connect climate policy and other environmental concerns to actions that provide near-term benefits for society while enhancing our capacity to deal with climate change in the long run?
