I think climate change is a dire threat and, unlike some curmudgeons, I think Thunberg provided a public service in calling attention to the threat.
However, I find it preposterous to assert that Thunberg had a unique, transformative impact on public opinion in a way no other person has.
Before her breakthrough moment, her cross-Atlantic journey this August, concern about climate change was already very intense.
A Gallup poll in March looked at trends in opinion on climate change going back to 2001.
ADADAgain, I do think Thunberg has heightened interest in climate change, but hundreds and thousands of scientists, activists and political leaders have been tilling the soil and moving the public on climate change for years now.
