Climate Choices: How Should We Meet the Challenges of a Warming Planet?

Resource

Climate change is not only an environmental problem. It is also a public-health issue, a threat to national security, and an economic challenge of considerable magnitude. Only recently has the public debate shifted away from weighing the evidence to asking what we should do about our changing climate and the effects that are beginning to be felt. This issue guide is designed to promote meaningful, productive discussions, convened locally and online, about difficult issues that affect the environment and communities.

The Climate Choices issue guide was prepared for the National Issues Forums Institute in collaboration with the Kettering Foundation and the North American Association for Environmental Education. The Environment and Society Series is designed to promote meaningful, productive deliberation, convened locally and online, about difficult issues that affect the environment and communities.
