Update: Due to enthusiastic response, this event is now full.
Reminder: Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, Director of the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication and principal investigator for the landmark reports on Global Warming's Six Americas, will be at NCAR for an interactive discussion next week, on
Tuesday, June 11, 2013, 10:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
There are just a few seats left in the Main Seminar Room, so reserve a place now at the link below, or plan to view the live webcast on the 11th.
Leiserowitz will discuss his multiyear research analyzing Americans’ interpretations of and responses to climate change. This work segments the American public into six audiences that range from “Alarmed” to “Dismissive.” The intensive survey research has resulted in a typology of American beliefs about extreme weather, natural disasters, and responses to climatic change.
The presentation will illuminate the challenges scientists, policy makers, and others face in understanding the different segments of American public opinion and how to communicate with them. Scientists from NCAR and NOAA will join Leiserowitz to share insights gleaned from their public presentations.
Seating is limited and lunch will be served, so please RSVP to: http://president.ucar.edu/events/climate-change-american-mind
