Energy Politics + Public Opinion = Policy Changes

Majorities of Americans say that global warming and clean energy should be among the nation’s priorities…will those beliefs translate into any action in the government?

 

Energy Politics + Public Opinion = Policy Changes

with James Druckman, Professor of Political Science

 

Will the US ever adopt more alternative energy sources?

How does the politicization of science affect new energy innovations? It all depends on public opinion.

 

At this final Science Café for the academic year, James Druckman will present his research on how public opinion is formed and how it shapes our US energy policy.

You can order and eat dinner during the presentation.  The burgers are great!
