Have you ever found yourself in a conversation that was going really well, so well in fact the other person seemed to like you, like, a lot? Like:
And then all of a sudden, the topic of climate change comes up, and you’re in a struggle.
Like, a MAJOR struggle. You try to get out. But you can’t.
the conversation gets frustrating
The vibe goes from “Yes yes yes!”
to “no no no”
in two simple words:
and all of a sudden the person hates you
and their friends hate you
Even if your position is supported by facts, they say ‘wrong’.
Well I’m about to tell you about a free Climate Advocate Training you can attend that will equip you with the tools you need
to turn a no about climate change
into a “yes”:
Are you excited??
Are you paying attention to what I’m saying??
Because I’m about to give you the answer to any cocktail party’s climate change debate ails. Yeah!!
