Progressives, conservatives and climate change
March 8, 2023
Sociology researcher and CSFS Associate Dr. Emily Huddart Kennedy argued that hate and disdain among progressives and conservatives prevent us from addressing climate change.
“My interviews and survey research showed me that each of us cares about the environment,” notes Dr. Kennedy “certainly, we do so in ways that are distinct and can be incompatible. And we do so in ways that make sense for each of us, given our personal experiences and the social context of our lives.”
