12:00 noon – 1:30 p.m., Olson Room, Gowen 1A “How Climate Change Became Controversial”

Riley Dunlap is Professor of Sociology at Oklahoma State University. His empirical research has had three major foci: (1) Environmental concern, including trends in public opinion on environmental issues; cross-national comparisons of citizen concern for the environment; and the nature and sources of environmental attitudes, beliefs and worldviews; (2) The environmental movement, particularly the evolution and current status of American environmentalism, public support for the environmental movement, and the development of international environmentalism; and (3) Climate change, especially public opinion toward climate change issues, political polarization over climate change and the nature and sources of climate-change denial.
