Contact: Sue Haley, 508-255-3421
Global warming is one of this century’s major threats. Yet emotion, politics, apathy, and misunderstanding all pose challenges to addressing it. Recent research has begun to shed light on the psychology of global warming and the best means to communicate the complex science and the importance of action. Learn about the latest directions in global warming engagement and the communication tools you can employ in your own life during this free, one-hour program at Salt Pond Visitor Center on Sunday, June 29, at 7 PM. The session will be presented by Justin Rolfe-Redding, a doctoral candidate at the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University.
