Depolarizing Within: A Better Way to Prepare for Climate Discussions,
presented by Better Angels [two hours]
A surprising aspect of today’s epidemic of toxic polarization between climate advocates and climate skeptics is that much is driven by how we talk with like-minded people about those on the other side. Too often we stereotype, dismiss, or ridicule our fellow citizens who differ from us in their perspectives on climate change. How we talk among ourselves about them fuels fires that threaten the progress of climate solutions. Become more aware of your inner polarizer, learn to depolarize yourself and acquire skills for intervening in social conversations with like-minded people when they veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other views.
