Citizens’ Climate Lobby

Per Espen Stoknes | Citizens’ Climate Lobby | December 2018 Monthly Speaker

December 8, 2018

On CCL's December call, Executive Director Mark Reynolds reviews all of the significant actions that CCL groups across the country have done since the historic Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act was introduced.

We are also joined by Per Espen Stoknes, a Norwegian psychologist and politician for the Green Party who served as a deputy representative to the Parliament of Norway.

He weaves together psychology and economics in imaginative ways, often revolving around our human relationships to the natural world and to each other. He is the author of the book, What We Think About When We Try Not to Think About Global Warming. Stoknes posits that people have five inner defenses that stop people from engaging on climate change, and he offers ways to "flip" those defenses.
