Whenever I see things like these, I cannot help but think, “My fellow enviros and I are responsible for this.” There are very, very few actual scientists in congress, for example. And very, very few environmentalists volunteer on their local community’s boards. Without science minded people in politics, we get the above result.
It’s Climate Science Communications Week at Climate Adaptation! For the entire week of Feb. 18 - 23, I’ll cover how climate change is discussed by the media, scientists, researchers, academics, and politicians. If you have sources or ideas on communicating climate change, send to: http://climateadaptation.tumblr.com/submit
