Michael Ranney discusses how to increase public acceptance of global warming

Michael Ranney

Please join us for a conversation with Michael Ranney (Professor, Graduate School of Education) as he discusses recent experiments in which he and his collaborators demonstrated that brief climate change interventions (texts, videos, graphs, statistics, and more) significantly increase the public’s understanding and acceptance of global warming.

Professor Ranney will also discuss HowGlobalWarmingWorks.org, his group’s website designed to enhance “climate change cognition” (see, e.g., Ranney & Clark, 2016).

Date: Wednesday, April 27

Time: 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (with optional extra discussion)

Place: Education/Psychology Library, 2600 Tolman Hall
