Climate feedback: improving media coverage of climate science
G22 LT |
26 Bedford Way
London | WC1H 0DS | United Kingdom
Michel Tsamados, Lecturer in Polar Observation and Modelling, University College London
Emmanuel Vincent, Leads Climate Feedback project, University of California, Merced
Chris Rapley, Professor, University College London
With so much information available online, trying to figure out which information is credible — and what is not — is a real challenge. When so much of what we read falls outside of our own expertise, how can we know which headlines and news articles are consistent with science?
As an introduction to how climate research is often mis-communicated, Michel Tsamados will discuss two examples from his research interests in the polar regions introducing two apparent sea ice paradoxes.
In a second part Emmanuel Vincent will present the ClimateFeedback.org initiative, which organizes a worldwide network of scientists to fact-check influential climate media stories and rate their “scientific credibility”.
Following these two presentations a dialogue between the speakers and the audience will be lead by Professor Chris Rapley.
