CLIMATE and ENERGY
In September 2021 a new sample of America in One Room will convene to deliberate about policy options for climate and energy. These public deliberations will focus on possible options to help achieve Net Zero (the point at which we would no longer be adding to the total of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere).
This will be a Helena project, with a national sample of about 500 and a comparably sized control group recruited by NORC at the University of Chicago. Partners include California Forward, the Greater Houston Partnership, the Center for Houston’s Future and the Bridge Foundation for Free Speech and Civil Discourse. Results should be available before the Glasgow Summit (the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, 31 October, 2021). Participants will deliberate online using the Stanford Platform for Online Deliberation.
