Undisciplined: Climate Change And Me

Jul 25, 2021

How much do your personal choices affect climate change? Does promoting the use of energy efficient light bulbs take away from pushing for bigger policy changes like a carbon tax? A new study suggests that reflecting on our individual sustainability efforts might actually make us more likely to support ambitious policy proposals.

Gregg Sparkman is a co-author of the study and a postdoctoral researcher at the Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment at Princeton University. His work focuses on understanding social change through the lens of social and cognitive psychology.
