Breakthrough Dialogues: Myths About Societal Inaction on Climate Change

Breakthrough Dialogues: Myths About Societal Inaction on Climate Change

As I wrote last week, the Breakthrough Dialogues launched in 2011 as one of America’s top new thought leader forums, in part because of the cross-cutting ideological discussion and mix of speakers and attendees that were featured at the inaugural “Modernizing Liberalism” event.  To highlight those discussions, the sponsoring Breakthrough Institute put together a series of multi-media shorts by Dialogue speakers, similar in style to Big Think interviews.

Below, as part of these segments, I discuss several of the key findings from last year’s Climate Shift report, highlighting the conclusions relative to false balance in the mainstream news media and spending on the part of green groups and their longstanding opponents among conservative think tanks, advocacy groups, and aligned industry associations.
