Communicating about science: lessons from the climate change discussion

I came across a set of some 30 short videos on the subject of climate change, many of which touch on issues surrounding communicating about science in public venues.  I haven’t viewed them all, but it seems to be an informative series with something to offer anyone interested in clear communication about science. I’ve tried to embed the first in this series, but it is no longer shared from that site. So in trying to find an alternative, I came across this way-too-long YouTube video. As I watched, it continued to make sense. So I embed it here.

Steven Schneider is the speaker in the first eight ~2 minute videos;  Schneider passed away in July 2010;  his web site here seems a good place to spend time learning both about the science and the policy issues surrounding climate change.
