They also engage the public in climate change science and solutions, in partnership with governments, media organizations, companies, and civil society, and with a daily, national radio program, Yale Climate Connections.
The Partnerships Program supports advocates, governments, educators, and companies drawing on YPCCC data and insights, including Climate Change in the American Mind national surveys, Yale Climate Opinion Maps, Global Warming’s Six Americas, Microtargeting Models, and Message and Field Experiments.
