On alternating months, we will pick a topic or theme related to climate change, provide a few positive talking points and some responses to key questions or criticisms. Our goal is to open up the conversation, focus on common values, and help us all move forward, together, on climate solutions. This guidance is grounded in ecoAmerica’s extensive research on climate communications, and our experience deploying it. See list and links below.
This summer, many Americans are experiencing the impact of climate change.

This has consequences on our lives and livelihoods — and it’s caused by climate change. What’s the best way to make the connection between extreme weather and climate? This month’s talking points offer some answers to help you.
