If you heard President Obama’s Inauguration speech last week, it was as surprising to many as it was unmistakable: Climate change is back on the front burner. But why, after laying low as policy talk turned to tax increases and debt ceilings, is climate change hot again? And how do Americans really feel about it? Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz can give us a hint. He is Research Scientist and the Director of the Yale University Project on Climate Change Communication, and among their various projects is “Global Warming’s Six Americas” that analyzes Americans’ interpretations of and responses to climate change.

About this site
This is the show I've always wanted to do.
Given all the arguing that dominates television, radio and the web -- the he said/she said, the all-or-nothing verbal warfare, the relentless search for scandal or quick quip -- the most simple element that drives important, human communication is often missing: Smart conversation.
Yes, there is a space that exists between the screaming -- between the one-sided agendas, the caustic commentary and irrational judgement that defines audiences down and drives much of today's content.
There is space between the noise. That's where "Conversations with Thinkers" sits.
At its best, smart conversation informs, excites and prods. It reveals, intrigues and explains. Always, it must entertain.
Here you'll find conversation on politics, business, foreign affairs, culture, economics, sports, public policy and more.
"Conversations with Thinkers" is for someone who wants to explore ideas in a rational way. Someone who wants to connect.
Thanks for listening. I welcome your feedback.
