Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz

Considered an expert on American and international public opinion on global warming, his talk, “Climate change in the American Mind,” will discuss recent trends in Americans’ climate change knowledge, attitudes, policy support and behavior and strategies for more effective public engagement.

The Yale Project on Climate Change Communication works to empower educators with more knowledge and tools to better engage audiences, conduct research and design and test new strategies to educate the public.

Leiserowitz and his project have led some of the most careful studies of public opinion related to climate change science and policy. Their reports on the "Global Warming's Six Americas" have fascinating implications for effective environmental communication.
