Your views on nature depend largely on how you were nurtured.

There’s a common view that, if people knew more about climate science, they’d accept it. But that view is wrong. What people believe about climate change depends largely on their backgrounds: a complex swirl of emotions, social ties, morals, experiences, and community connections. This insight suggests an effective strategy for environmental educators: tie environmental lessons to students’ identities to change their hearts and minds.
