Matthew H. Goldberg (@MattGoldberg100) is my guest on this episode. He’s a Postdoctoral Associate at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. He’s an expert in social psychological topics related to communication, such as attitudes and persuasion, motivated reasoning, and ideology.
We discuss Matt’s recent paper A Social Identity Approach to Engaging Christians in the Issue of Climate Change, published this month in Science Communication. We also talk about related work at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, where Matt works.
Matt talked about Katherine Hayhoe, an Evangelical Christian and climate activist, during the episode. Here is a short biographical video on Katherine Hayhoe from NOVA’s Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers series. Her YouTube channel is Global Weirding with Katherine Hayhoe.
