Communicating Climate Change

As Washington prepares to address climate change, how can ecologists ensure that public and private decision-makers have all the necessary scientific information? Dr. Tony Janetos, director of the Joint Global Change Research Institute, discusses the challenges and responsibilities of communicating climate change, ranging from reconciling uncertainty to upholding scientific credibility. Dr. Janetos draws from an extensive background in climate change research, leadership, and collaboration, which includes serving as co-chair for the U.S. National Assessment of Potential Consequences of Climate Variability and Change, and as an author for both the IPCC Special Report on Land-Use Change and Forestry and the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
