Solutions to climate change rest on science, technology, political will, and public support. In this talk, I will discuss efforts from our lab over the past decade that aim to address problems related to human behavior, resource use, and climate change. Using methods that have strong links to environmental and cognitive science, we have investigated questions ranging from how people think about how much energy different appliances use, how to correct misperceptions using expert heuristics, what energy mix people want us to use in 2050, and some factors that shape the credibility of climate communicators. We will also provide an overview of some of our main research findings and a taste of our current research projects. I would love to engage with you all on the path forward. Please bring questions and ideas.
