How to Talk to a Climate Skeptic

Who here might be able to imagine the psychology of someone--climate change skeptic or not--who feels overwhelmed and incapacitated by the thought of climate change?

Love the Mark Twain quote--so accurate! Wish people would just open their eyes and look around--it's obvious what's happening. The greenhouse effect is happening, climate change is real!

It depends on the skeptic. Most skeptics are so closed to considering a different point of view that even if you present actual facts and figures they'll respond by telling you your sources aren't credible. Unfortunately, they have to fall into the hole before they believe it's there.

I have never met a person who was at least open minded.

That was such a powerful video. If we can connect climate change to something from another persons's story; then we can make it real for them. Thank you for sharing this video. Simran Seth is such a dynamic speaker with a heart that is connected to others and the universe. That is what we must do. She sees opportunity where others see only closed doors. I, for one, am going through the doors and reaching out to hear other people's stories in order to enable them to connect to climate change. Thank you, Cher. You are a wise woman. (n, p, t)
