Is there any evidence that people who recycle also advocate for institutional policy changes to combat man-made climate change?post by jbosc · 2021-01-22T08:14:58.675Z · EA · GW · No comments
This is a question post.
It seems intuitive to me that people who recycle are more likely to vote for politicians that promise to reduce carbon emissions, or to volunteer for non-profits for example.
Is that true though? The rebuttal might be that recycling just makes people feel good about themselves and prevents them from having a more concrete impact (i.e. if everyone started recycling correctly, we would barely make a dent in fossil fuel emissions).
