Suggested reading for climate change activists? If I make a list for the December holiday season, I’ll include Doug Muder’s essay about “political empathy.” You’ll find it in the Winter 2013 issue of “World” magazine….. The big problem in the climate change debate is that – well, the debate is much too “polarized.” (Sorry, polar bears.) So, there is very little sympathy for opponents…. It doesn’t matter if you belong to the Tea Party or to the Sierra Club or to some other group…. If I tell you my position on climate change and you disagree, it’s obvious that you’re ignorant, at best, and, maybe, you’re some kind of cheat with a hidden agenda…. Hmmmmmm….. It doesn’t have to be this way. When the first climate change discussions started, there was a lot of bipartisanship. As community problems have developed, different groups have found ways to work together. This often happens after a natural disaster… Maybe religious groups can help in this situation.
