Climate change communication researchers and representatives of diverse climate science information media convene in Beijing under auspices of leading Yale and Renmin University programs.
Scientists sometimes ‘have a special responsibility to engage on policy issues’ relevant to their science. But they need to proceed with care when they remove their scientist hats and speak instead as citizens. Reposted with permission of The Conversation.

Bullish prospects for electric and low-emission cars and advice on localizing ‘global’ warming impacts are among key messages heard at a recent annual convention of environmental journalists.
The reining-in of a well-known science magazine’s comments section is aimed at improving science understanding and ‘literacy.’ The move highlights critical communications puzzles in the quickly evolving digital media world.
The Yale Forum here points to several of its postings written to improve understanding of the wealth of climate data that will begin to emerge later this week from the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report.
In evaluating arguments on climate change, great care is needed in how numbers are used…and in what context. With this week’s scheduled release of the first volume of IPCC’s next assessment report, this feature reviews recent work on numeracy.
