Chloe’s research showed that there was a way to emphasise the commonalities between folk’s concerns about life. Her study shows that people who are unconcerned about climate change are not necessarily less well informed or less dedicated to living a moral life than those who are .Thoughtful dialogue between groups with divergent views on climate change can create opportunities for learning and democratic support for policy responses, as well as diverse ways of communicating with the public.
