The Stanford Law School Israel Regional Chapter invites you to attend a reception and lecture featuring Jon Krosnick featuring Jon Krosnick, the Frederic O. Glover Professor in Humanities and Social Sciences at Stanford University.

During the past two decades, many natural scientists have been frustrated by the American public’s apparent indifference to climate change and the lack of substantial government action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transform America’s energy economy. Headlines on newspapers across the country have proclaimed such things as: “Scientists and the American Public Disagree Sharply over Global Warming.” Is it really true that Americans reject the opinions of natural scientists on climate change? And if not, what explains the lack of government action on the issue?

In this presentation, Professor Krosnick will describe findings from a series of national surveys that he has designed and conducted since 1996, tracking what Americans do and do not believe on this issue and what they do and do not want to have done about it. Surprising results challenge many widely-held presumptions about public opinion, illuminate the increasing politicization of the issue, and help set the stage for understanding how future legislation on climate change may fare.

Space is limited; kindly register by Thursday, March 10.

This event is generously hosted by Greenberg Traurig.
