How to Communicate the Scientific Consensus on Climate Change Last Updated on 2014-07-23 11:14:00 We are pleased to announce a newly published article: "How to Communicate the Scientific Consensus on Climate Change: Plain Facts, Pie Charts or Metaphors?" by Sander van der Linden, Anthony Leiserowitz, Geoffrey Feinberg and Edward W. Maibach in the journal Climatic Change. The article is available for free download here: http://bit.ly/1kYTLUb   At present, only one in ten (12%) Americans understand that 90% or more climate scientists have concluded that human-caused climate change is happening. Recent research has found that this public misunderstanding about the degree of scientific consensus is highly consequential: public perceptions of the scientific consensus appear to influence public beliefs that global warming is happening, human-caused and a serious problem that requires public action and legislative support. Our new paper offers some practical... More »

Critical trends in population growth include longer lifespans (68 years, compared to 48 in 1950); ageing (people over 80 are the fastest-growing age group); urbanization (more than half the world’s people now live in cities, but two out of...
