Teen changes step-dad’s mind on climate change (while going from climate denier to climate hawk)
Yale Climate Connections featured repubicEN spokesperson Lance Lawson in their latest 90-second episode.
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.
