Abstract

The public debate around climate change is no longer about carbon dioxide and climate models. It is about values, culture, worldviews, and ideology. And the greater the efforts to present sophisticated data on climate change—without attending to the values that climate change threatens—the greater resistance there will be to a social consensus on global warming.

Keywords: Culture, climate change, Partisan divide, Public opinion
