Abstract:

Two panel discussions with question and answer periods from a conference of scientists and media representatives. Emphasis of conference was on how to improve scientific communication to the media and how the media could more accurately inform the public on environmental issues. In presenting the problem of air pollution, the first panel stressed that environmental clean up must be an international effort to be effective, and explained how and why research often appears to be contradictory to the non scientist. The second session described air pollution's contribution to global warming and pointed out that climatic modeling requires a better understanding of probability. The consensus developed during the question periods was that scientists must learn to simplify their presentations and media personnel must make an effort to enlarge their scientific understanding. Both agreed the media should keep environmental issues and research before the public continuously and emphasize possible policy solutions.
