Influencing and Educating others on Climate Change

Science Illiteracy is a tool that many politicians and Anti-Climate Action Activists use to make Climate Change seem inevitable and confusing. This is how and why people tend to get frustrated and deny the fact Climate Action needs to happen and that they must be part of this moment.

How do we move past this and begin to truly inspire and educate others? We need to explain the many ways Climate Change will effect their lives, their interests and future. Finding different ways to engage with people is key, as everyone’s priorities are different. This could include discussing the long term effects on agriculture, or explaining the economic benefits of switching to Alternative Energy options.

We can all advocate and lobby for practical and accessible options in reducing our carbon footprints. We can all do something personally and as a whole and by discussing and sharing these tips, the change can and will happen!

If I just explain the facts, they’ll get it, right?

  1. I like the concept of ” science illiteracy as a tool” by some politicians to sow doubt, and therefore hinder action on climate.
