C-Change Conversations (creating effective dialogue on climate change)
Kathleen’s talk, “What We Need to Know About Our Changing Climate,” is a concise, non-partisan, scientifically based presentation created to answer five questions that the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication says are held by Americans across the political spectrum:
• How do we know it’s real?
• How do we know it is us?
• What do scientists think?
• What are the dangers?
• Is there hope we can address it?
Biggins’ presentation is a primer on climate change created by C-Change Conversations, a non-profit dedicated to promoting informed discussion around climate change, and its impacts. The goal is to provide a clear and accessible overview of the science behind climate change and a clear-eyed assessment of potential risks ahead.
