The Psychology of Climate Change Communication

November 16, 2009


The Center for Research on Environmental Decisions (CRED) at Columbia University released in November 2009 a 43-page guide, The Psychology of Climate Change Communication:  A Guide for Scientists, Journalists, Educators, Political Aides, and the Interested Public.

“The guide looks at how people process information and decide to take action, or not. Using research into the reactions of groups as disparate as African farmers and conservative U.S. voters, it offers insights on how scientists, educators, journalists and others can effectively connect with the wider world.”
