Climate Change Seminar - Communicating Climate Change

Monday, May 1, 2017 at 2:55pm to 4:10pm

Warren Hall, B25

Summary:

It seems the only thing changing faster than Earth's environment these days is the communication environment. Mainstream media are shrinking. Global connectivity is exploding. Facts and fantasy flow side by side. Filters and bubbles insulate factions. Andy Revkin, who's been communicating about climate, energy and sustainable development for more than 30 years describes paths toward progress, most requiring a relentless focus on engagement and innovation.
