Reporting the Science of Climate Change - Emma Archer

Language: English

How do scientists take concepts they come up with in the laboratory and translate them into something journalists can use? Emma Archer, principal climate change scientist at CSIR, discusses it.

South Africa's Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) and the Applied Centre for Climate and Earth Systems Science (ACCESS) hosted the first in a series of workshops for scientists and journalists. The event aimed to inform the general public on science-related news that have an impact on their and the planet's future.

The workshop, titled “Reporting the science of climate change” took place in Pretoria, South Africa, from 4 to 5 June 2012. It focused on climate change science, as well as on key risks to Southern Africa, national and regional response strategies, and particularly on how best to communicate complex information to the general public.
