There’s a growing belief that decarbonization will be driven by economics (lower prices for clean renewables) and energy security, not politics. A clean energy revolution may be the (tail) that ultimately wags the climate change (dog). In an effort to bridge a frustrating partisan divide I wrote a book with Methodist minister and Evangelical Environmental Network President Mitch Hescox, weaving faith and traditionally conservative values into a scientific narrative. The messenger is important: America's meteorologists have a unique opportunity to tailor messaging for their intended audience. Explaining the science in a way that is hyper-relevant, localizing the impact of climate change is critical. But so is framing the challenge in a way that effectively resonates with conservative ideals. Convincing a majority of conservatives that climate change is real and solvable is essential, and inevitable. Iteration, experimentation and the inclusion of personal faith stories into a science-based narrative can help to break down barriers with an audience that often views the scientific method with latent skepticism. Conservatives conserve - this applies to the natural resources that sustain our families and hometowns - an ethos that resonates across all faith groups. Presenting both health-related impacts of air pollution in addition to longer-term climate trends, while emphasizing personal responsibility and a pragmatic, solutions-based approach, may be essential to building the necessary bipartisan consensus capable of effective and sustainable climate action.
