Distinguished Lecture Series - Day Pass 4/12 - Public Opinion on Climate Change: An In-Depth Look
This lecture will examine public opinion on climate change. It follows up work published by Professor Hoffman 10 years ago. Current data show some encouraging new trends. Also, the same variables influence people’s attitudes and opinions toward climate and the threats it represents: Liberalism-Conservatism, political party affiliation, overall values, and worldview. Drawing on insights from sociology, psychology, and political science, Professor Hoffman will go on to discuss strategies that may increase public consensus concerning climate change and its mitigation. Andrew (Andy) is the Holcim U.S. Professor Enterprise of Sustainable Enterprises at the University of Michigan, a position that holds joint appointments in the Stephen. M. Ross School of Business and the School for Environment & Sustainability. Professor Hoffman’s research uses organizational behavior models and theories to understand the cultural and institutional aspects of environmental issues for organizations. He has published over 100 articles/book chapters, as well as 16 books which have been translated into six languages.
