December AGU Panel: Climate Communication, Tools and Tips

During the 2012 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), Director Susan Hassol and Science Director Richard Somerville conducted a panel alongside James Balog of Chasing Ice.

The panel, “Climate Communication: Tools and Tips”, is described on the AGU website:

“Want to improve your ability to communicate successfully about climate science, create effective messages about your research, give public presentations, talk to reporters, speak with policymakers, and answer commonly asked questions about climate change?

Come and gain valuable tools and tips from climate change communication specialist Susan Joy Hassol, climate scientist Richard Somerville, and photographer James Balog. The speakers will address what we say and how we say it, dealing with framing, messaging, psychological and cultural issues, the value of narrative, and the power of images.”
