I oversee the Climate Advocacy Lab, spending most of my waking hours working to make the Lab as useful as possible to the people doing the critical work of engaging the public around climate change. Prior to joining the Skoll Global Threats Fund in 2014, where the Lab was first incubated, I worked for 12 years for Environment America, first at the state level in Pennsylvania and later as Environment America’s federal global warming program director in Washington, D.C., focusing on organizing and advocacy to promote climate, clean air and clean energy policy solutions.

Geographic Area of Focus:

My research interests include persuasion, behavior change, statistical methods, and message design. My doctoral work investigates the role of hope in encouraging engagement with global warming, analyzing survey and experiment data. My research has also addressed the influence of political identity and values in global warming beliefs, and the effects of news coverage, social identity framing, and past behavior on attitudes and further behavior. In addition to a background in the environmental advocacy community, I have worked as a research consultant with the National Wildlife Federation, National Park Service, and the Environmental Protection Agency. I received a master’s degree in Communication from the University of Washington and a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Chicago. Email: justin@climateadvocacylab.org
