EPIC is hosting a conversation with their 2021-2022 policy fellows Carlos Curbelo and Heather McTeer Toney. Curbelo and McTeer Toney will dig into the results of an upcoming EPIC/AP-NORC poll conducted annually to track opinions on central topics shaping the energy and climate landscape in the United States. The event will discuss the sentiments of the American public on climate change, as well as how much they would personally sacrifice to combat it. The talk will also focus on renewable energy’s area requirements, as well as how that will impact the general American public. The results of the upcoming EPIC/AP-NORC poll will also survey Americans on the broader fight against climate change — such as cleaning up minority and disenfranchised communities, and providing aide to developing countries to help them transition to clean energy.

This event is part of EPIC’s Energy Inquiry & Impact Series, designed to explore the latest energy data coming out of the University of Chicago and their impacts on policy discussions. Cutting-edge findings will serve as the launching pad to frame these deep-dive conversations, as researchers and EPIC policy fellows navigate ways to translate research into solutions.
