“Exploring the Adaptation-Mitigation Relationship: Does Information on the Costs of Adapting to Climate Change Influence Support for Mitigation?”
Can information about adaptation costs influence citizens’ willingness to support climate change mitigation? This presentation will explore why some scholars are concerned that policy discussions on adaptation might present climate change as a more manageable problem, and therefore crowd out mitigation efforts.
This is a brown bag seminar hosted by the Climate Impacts Group. Feel free to bring your lunch.
