Study-Hopeful climate change messages are more effective than fear

This article discusses a small study in the journal Global Environmental Change on the psychology of climate change and climate change denial. The results of the study suggest “that the motivation to act against climate change isn’t really about fear per se but instead depends on psychological coping strategies that help people deal with their environmental worries. Those coping strategies, and the action they spur, are essentially a form of hope.”
