Kennedy v. Blankenship debate

Robert Kennedy Jr. is a passionate environmentalist and attorney, who has been arguing for years that coal is destroying Appalachia and the climate. Don Blankenship is the head of the biggest coal company in the south, Massey Energy, responsible for coal mining mountaintop removal and the mining of much of the coal that is polluting the country. Kennedy has been publicly speaking out against Massey and Blankenship for years, and the two finally debated on January 22nd at the University of Charleston. It’s a fascinating and maddening debate,  and I am in awe of people who can debate polluters like Blankenship, who is a climate criminal, and keep their cool. Kennedy remains logical and puts forth his case very well and very passionately. He has 100X the facts that Blankenship has.

The American Public’s Views of Global Climate Change


Produced by:
National Science Foundation

National Science Foundation — 10/25/2007


Public opinion on climate change has shifted dramatically over the past 20 years, thanks to intense media coverage about global warming – coverage that, for better or worse, shaped both popular attitudes and the national political debate. Social Scientist Jon Krosnick of Stanford University argues that Americans’ perceptions of climate change were severely distorted for years because so many journalists portrayed global-warming research as a heated argument between rival factions instead of what it actually was: namely, a growing body of shared knowledge. Krosnick’s analysis is an eye-opening look at how Americans know what they know, and why they believe what they believe.
