U.S. Climate Change: Regional Differences & How to Prepare for What’s Ahead [YANA & Yale BlueGreen
Show Notes

We’re already living through the beginnings of climate chaos. In Arizona, laborers now start their day at 3 a.m. because it’s too hot to work past noon. Chinese investors are snapping up real estate in Canada. Millennials have evacuation plans. Moguls are building bunkers. Retirees in Miami are moving inland.

Join us for insights from the Yale Program Climate Change Communication into regional differences in public knowledge, attitudes, policy preferences, and behavior, and the underlying psychological, cultural, and political factors that influence them. 

Discover how the Business Council on Climate Change fosters innovative approaches to collaboration and best practices with members such as Google, Salesforce, and Autodesk. What are current trends in climate change goal setting, supply chain sustainability, and the influence employees, customers and investors have on disclosures?

And learn what you can do to prepare for the change that is accelerating.
