Some region of the country rarely talks about scientific topics, so we set out to start conversations about the Clean Water Act and global warming.
Bringing the topic of climate change to Arkansas
During our research we found that our state, primarily red politically, often voted against environmentally friendly policies, but reported rarely having conversations regarding the environment or global warming. We researched methods for making science relatable to those who are not particularly interested in the study and myths commonly believed regarding global warming and environmental policy. Then we took a road trip to a rural county in Arkansas and knocked on doors hoping to start conversations.
