Framing Climate Change

In the March/April issue of Environment Magazine, American University’s Matthew Nisbet discusses the challenge of communicating climate change, particularly as it relates to current perceptions in the  US.  While Nisbet’s initial policy outlook is debatable, his take on the communications side of things (and the conclusions to be drawn) is a very interesting read. For the bigger picture on the (somewhat contentious) framing issue, it is also worth revisiting Gavin Schmidt’s post on realclimate.org (including some of the comments).  

On a related note, it is time to draw some attention to the upcoming World Business Summit on Climate Change, where the economic development frame discussed by Nisbet will play a rather significant role.
