This New York Times op-ed from moral psychologist Jonathan Haidt brilliantly unpacks the political narratives embedded in recent rhetoric from both Democrats and Republicans. Haidt warns that demonizing opponents stirs up tribal reactions that can stand in the way of real solutions.
Haidt's new book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion, is now available in stores.
Jim Hoggan has become a champion of truth in the issue of climate change, writing a very important book, Climate Cover-Up, and establishing one of the most highly regarded blog sites, DeSmogBlog.com, that reveals the funding sources of deniers or skeptics and attacks the lobbying by apologists for the fossil fuel industry. His blog site is a must read for me every day.
