Hot Topics in Climate Communication

Abstract: For this network and beyond, our work in communicating about climate change has never been more important. From the threats posed by the new political climate, to fake news, to some in our community still shooting themselves in the foot on some issues, the challenges are enormous. I'll discuss my current thinking on these issues including some of my recently published articles on these topics. We'll focus on words that matter and issues that arise as we pursue the world's most important and time-sensitive conversation.

Bio: Susan Joy Hassol is the Director of Climate Communication, known for her ability to translate science into English.
