One of the most challenging issues facing the world today is how to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. The quantity of information on this subject is massive and growing, which presents another challenge. How can the best and relevant information be brought to the attention of decision makers and everyone else who has a stake in the future of the planet? A new book on the subject grapples with this question.
You can read a review of Communicating climate change information for decision-making, written by Curtis Martin, a graduate student working with the Environmental Information: Use and Influence (EIUI) research program, headed by Dr. Bertrum MacDonald, at this link.
