Blake Hudson on Climate Change Messaging
In this episode, Blake Hudson, Professor of Law and A.L. O'Quinn Chair in Environmental Studies at the University of Houston Law Center, discusses his article "Denying Disaster: A Modest Proposal for Transitioning from Climate Change Denial Culture in the Southeastern United States," which he co-authored with Evan Spencer, and published in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review. Hudson begins by observing that the Southeastern United States is especially vulnerable to climate change, but voters in the region resist policies intended to mitigate climate change. He reflects on the reasons for that resistance, and offers thoughts on how advocacy organizations could communicate with Southern voters more effectively. Hudson is on Twitter at @ForestLawProf.
