Urgent action is needed to curb greenhouse gas emissions and slow climate change. The U.S. has an important role to play in leading this action.  However, climate policy and behavioral change have thus far been inadequate, and climate change is ensuing at an accelerated pace.  I am an air pollution scientist and Athina is an educator. Together, we are visiting communities around the country to raise awareness about climate change and help point the nation toward solutions. This year we have decided to pause our careers in order to take to the road for this important cause! 

We developed a 24-question climate survey in order to better understand how climate change sentiment differs around the country and what aspects of climate change matter most to people, so as to better inform effective climate communication. Click here  to take our climate survey! 

On August 1st, we launched an 11 weeks national climate outreach campaign in which we gave nearly 40 public climate presentations at college campuses, churches, grade schools, and community centers across 36 states. We also interviewed scientists, policy makers, farmers, and others about climate impacts and solutions, and collected nearly 500 climate surveys.

This Earth Day (April 22), we shall take to the road again! This time, we'll be biting off a 6 week project so that we can do less driving and more outreach. To minimize emissions, we are again seeking a fuel efficient vehicle. En route, we'll visit communities across the Northwest as we continue to give public presentations about the causes, impacts, and solutions relating to climate change.  We will also engage in door-to-door activity as we continue to survey the public and understand climate sentiment around the country.

By generously donating today, you will keep our project moving forward!  We plan wisely to keep costs low. For our 2018 project, $7,900 of donations translated to 11 weeks of climate outreach, producing  42 public climate presentations, 13 online climate videos (more still coming!), 11 climate-related news publications, and the collection of 475 climate surveys! This means that for roughly every $100 you donate, you can expect us to produce one of these various deliverables (or ~50 climate surveys), while also managing to keep ourselves on the road (transportation, lodging, & food). You'll never see your dollar go further!!!

We have no official sponsors and are currently deferring employment for our climate outreach. Thus, every dollar counts. We are very grateful for donations of all size. All donors will receive a kind thank you in our online blog!  =)

If you're not sure if you want to donate, but would still like to support our project and contribute to climate action, consider making a purchase of my new book "Beyond Debate: Answers to 50 Misconceptions on Climate Change." Click here to learn more about the book and place your order!
