Yale Forum May webinar to probe author and professor David Victor’s ‘three species’ of climate skeptics, who, he says, won’t be going away any time soon.
Journalists and other communicators are increasingly using digital graphics to bring climate data to life. Will their creative new approaches help shake public ambivalence on the climate change issue?
So, is it ‘global warming’? Or better to say ‘climate change’? With both terms ‘politically polarized,’ it may come down to a matter of … Pick your poison.
It’s bad enough that too many appear insufficiently concerned about climate change impacts, but what really hurts is when those duly concerned are on verge of throwing in the towel.
A journal’s retraction of a researcher’s work in light of a ‘small number’ of complaints from those often described as climate ‘skeptics’ raises concerns about a chilling effect on scientific research. (Reposted with permission of The Conversation.)
Worry about science-based concerns over potential risks in a warmer climate is running into worry also about what it will take for scientists’ messages to get through to the public and policymakers … and the ‘climate fatigue’ concern.
The final edition of the National Climate Assessment, which was released in draft form about a year ago, is expected to reflect some approaches designed to make it more accessible for the public and more useful for decisionmakers.
