Abstract:

"Reporting on Climate Change" is a guide for reporters, educators, and other communicators on the current understanding about the science of global climate change. This bestselling guide is the fourth in a series initially intended to help journalists - both reporters and editors - understand and report on the most authoritative scientific findings involving the issues relating to global climate change. Initially conceived to be exclusively for journalists and editors, it has evolved over time as a resource also for formal and informal climate science educators and for other communicators needing a 'plain English' grasp of climate science. Replete with four-colour charts, graphs, and alarming photos of what climate change has done to our planet's landscape, this new edition provides readers with timely updates to recent events in the ongoing climate debate, including the 'Climategate' scandal, as well as new developments in the science itself. For reporters covering a story who are generalists rather than specialists in science or environmental writing, this guide can be of help to 'get up to speed' on the chemistry and physical sciences that produce weather and climate as we understand them.
