On this edition of Your Call's One Planet Series, we discuss a recent University of Colorado Boulder study about the role of climate change in shaping voting choices.

The study found that between the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, climate change became increasingly important to voters, and the importance voters assign to climate change became increasingly predictive of voting for the Democrats. If these trends continue, climate change could provide the Democrats with an even larger electoral advantage in 2024.
