America in One Room Climate and Energy: Discussion Results from a National Deliberative Poll
Date and Time
December 1, 2021 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Online via Zoom
America in One Room: Climate and Energy, a Helena project, is the largest controlled experiment with "in-depth deliberation" ever held in the U.S. It addressed this question: What would the American public really think about our climate and energy challenges if it had the chance to deliberate about them in-depth, with good and balanced information?
If the American people—or in this case, a representative sample of them—could consider the pros and cons of our different energy options, which would they support? Which would they cut back on? What possible paths to Net Zero would seem plausible to them? Which proposals would they resist? Can the public arrive at solutions to our climate and energy dilemmas that transcend our great divisions, especially our deep partisan differences? Can they also find common ground across differences in age, race, and region?
These and other questions will be discussed on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 12:30-2:00 pm PST
