Have you wondered, perhaps in frustration, why some people or groups reject the scientific consensus that climate change is real, human-caused and dangerous? Have you assumed that just "showing people the data" and having scientists "communicate better" will fix the perceived partisan divide on climate change? Is there a partisan divide?

Over the course of three lunch conversations, we will share our reactions to Andrew Hoffman's "How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate."

This book is a short, easy read, and our first meeting will be a conversation of the preface and first two chapters. Our second meeting will discuss the third and fourth chapters, and our final lunch discussion will cover the last two chapters.

You don't need to dedicate much time to become informed and engaged on this issue.

This is a NO GUILT reading group, so even if you have only skimmed the book, or want to hear what others have to say, please JOIN US!
