Proposed Session Title: Outreach to Conservatives on Global Warming
 
Session Description:
I have been reading everything I can get my hands on about climate science and zero-carbon energy since 2016. I have been specializing in outreach to conservatives on the issue, who have proved a tough nut to crack. The consensus of most on the left is the climate skeptics are just "paid shills" of the fossil fuel industry, and I outline why I don't think that's quite the case.
