How often do we talk about climate change to family, friends or coworkers? Probably next to never if we’re like most people.
Yale University’s national polling reveals that the majority of Americans accept that global warming is happening (73 percent) and are worried about it (63 percent). Even more want carbon dioxide regulated as a pollutant (81 percent).
Given these stats and the warning of scientists that the time window to prevent the worst effects of climate change is closing fast, what keeps us from openly discussing it?
