Podcast #87: Why Environmentalists Don’t Vote with Nathaniel Stinnett

September 28, 2020

In the 2016 US Presidential election, over 10 million people who listed the environment their top priority didn't vote. You might be asking, how can you be an environmentalist and not vote?

Today, Nathaniel Stinnett provides the answers.

Nathaniel Stinnett is the Founder & Executive Director of the Environmental Voter Project, a non-partisan nonprofit that uses big data and behavioral science to identify non-voting environmentalists and then get them to vote.

Dubbed “The Voting Guru” by Grist magazine, Stinnett was named one of America’s 50 environmental visionaries, and he is a frequent expert speaker on cutting-edge campaign techniques at top universities and campaign management training. He has held a variety of senior leadership and campaign manager positions on U.S. Senate, Congressional, state, and mayoral campaigns, and he sits on the Board of Advisors for MIT’s Environmental Solutions Initiative.

Nathaniel Stinnett will provide fascinating, insightful, and jaw-dropping reasons on why environmentalists don't vote in elections along with:

  • Why politicians don't prioritize climate change
  • The importance of a single vote
  • Why people vote
  • Turn out problems among environmentalists
  • Introduction to the Environmental Voter Project
