Do you get angry or sad when discussing climate change?

Economists travelled to Newcastle Business School to participate in an evening seminar which was led by Sally Russell, Associate Professor of Business, Organisations and Sustainability, University of Leeds. Dr Russell talked through her recent study of the importance of emotions in effective engagement and management of climate change. Her study analysed people’s heart rate and sweat gland responses as they discussed climate change issues. Emmanuel students monopolised the debate with a number of great follow-up questions.
