In the episode, Teen changes stepdad’s mind on global warming: both used to think the problem was a hoax, Lance recounts the journey he and his family went on from not believing the science of climate change to where they are today.

“I naturally started Googling something along the lines of ‘proof climate change isn’t real’ et cetera, et cetera,” Lance says. “And I found that the deeper I dug, the harder it became to find something that was credible.”

ICYMI: Lance wrote about this experience earlier this year in this Tampa Bay Times op-ed. He’s on his way to start freshman year at the College of William and Mary—and we couldn’t be more proud of him for getting his voice heard.

About the Author

republicEn.org is an organization committed to growing U.S. conservative climate leadership. Members of republicEn are conservatives, libertarians, and pragmatists of diverse political opinion. We stand together because we believe in American free enterprise. We believe that with a true level playing field, free enterprise can deliver the innovation to solve climate change. But America's climate policy needs to change. Change requires that conservative leaders step-up and lead. Climate change is real and we believe it's our duty and our opportunity to reduce the risks. But to make a difference, we have to fight climate change with free enterprise instead of ineffective subsidies and regulations.
