The Six Americas & Religious Talk about the Environment

The 6 Americas & Religious Talk about the Environment
Kathi Groenendyk, Communication Department, Calvin University

In a divisive political culture, environmental policy and environmental action are often considered polarizing: either you are pro-environment or you are not. This presentation covers recent research that reveals the public's reaction is more nuanced than that, and so, too, is the range of Christian responses. From this, we can better understand how we should communicate with others about environmental topics.
