Climate change and culture. Can we bridge the cultural divide?
In this slim book of 90 pages, How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate, Andrew J. Hoffman writes that his goal is "to build an edifice from the large and growing body of research in sociology, psychology, and other social sciences about why people accept or reject the science of climate change." And then to engage the reader to "put the insights of this research into use." It encourages us to think about how we think about climate change.
Cognitive filters. Cultural identity. Scientific reasoning. Political economy. Those are all here. This book is about "opposing cultural values and worldview through which that science [climate change] is seen."
