How to Communicate the Scientific Consensus on Climate ChangeLast Updated on 2014-07-31 17:34:13
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 »

Creating Resilience in the Food System Amidst Climate ChangeLast Updated on 2014-07-31 17:30:37
The global food system is growing more fragile. Changing climate and volatile weather patterns threaten global food production and the livelihood of smallscale farmers around the globe. And current weather patterns could reduce food production globally by two percent each decade for the rest of this century, according to The Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
The increase in food prices in 2008, excessive heat and drought resulting in wildfires in Russia in 2010, and most recently the worst drought in more than 100 years in California, all are warning signs that farmers and farmers’ groups, global food producers, industry leaders, researchers, and scientists must address the planet’s food security in the face of weather volatility and climate change.
Fortunately, innovations in fields, farms, kitchens, among businesses, and in laboratories and boardrooms already exist.... More »
