Resilience NYC Meetup Group Message Board › Changing the conversation?

Changing the conversation?

A former member
Post #: 1
Hi all,

Misinformation and apathy are everywhere right now! How can we change the Climate Change conversation in the US?

Make it less about politics? Persuade deniers on comment boards / chat rooms? Focus on the self-interest angle, rather than the environment?

I'd love to hear your thoughts!

If two hurricanes hitting the tri-state area in two years (Sandy and Irene) didn't wake people up, I don't know what will. Lower Manhattan underwater, the New Jersey shore washed away, people without power for weeks, train service knocked out for a month, dozens dead, what more does it take to stir people from apathy if Hurricane Sandy didn't? (And Hurricane Irene, to a lesser extent, the year before)
