Step one to generate political will for climate solutions is to get people who care about the environment to vote. When Nathaniel Stinnett found out that environmentalists, by and large, were staying home on election day, he saw a problem in need of a solution. That's why in 2015 he launched the Environmental Voter Project, which identifies environmentalists who don't vote and reaches out to get them to the polls. On this month's call, Nathaniel will share some of the ways his organization has successfully activated this important bloc of voters.

Just days after the midterm elections and right before CCL volunteers lobby on Capitol Hill, we talk to Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, director of the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, about their latest polling on Americans’ views about climate change and solutions like carbon pricing.
Dr. Leiserowitz is an expert on public opinion and public engagement with the issues of climate change and the environment. His research investigates the psychological, cultural, and political factors that influence environmental beliefs, attitudes, policy support, and behavior.
