Recently, I had the opportunity to meet and have a conversation with John Sutter. He is a reporter with CNN and you can view his profile here on CNNs website.
He’s working on a story for CNN about Emery County peoples’ views on global warming. There was a survey from Yale researchers that estimated our county has one of the highest rates of climate skepticism in the US – meaning people often do not believe that humans and pollution are causing the Earth to warm. He is staying in our county for a week doing a listening tour, trying to understand peoples’ views on this issue, how they form them, what’s important to people here.
There will be follow up to this conversation.
