An advocate for evidence.
The e-nvironmentalist is a new conversation about an old topic. Yes, the odd opinion may slip in here and there, but for the most part, we’re an ideology-free zone. A thermometer is not left or right wing — so we try not to be either.
Besides, when it comes to an issue as ubiquitous and intractable as climate change, the facts should be enough to persuade someone about the merits of doing something about it, regardless of their politics. Of course, facts are never enough — in part because our ancient brains are persuaded more easily by stories than they are by evidence.
So the primary task for us is to make climate science and the facts of climate change more digestible, more attractive and, well, a little less boring. As Einstein once put it, ‘if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough’. That’s our challenge.
We hope you enjoy.
