Communicating Climate Change: Talk at NASA Goddard
On April 8 at noon, I will be giving a talk on climate change communication at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. Below are the details. The talk is open to all NASA staff as well as the public.
Communicating Climate Change: Why Frames Matter to Public Engagement
Bldg 8, Management Conference Center
Time: 12:00 PM
Building broad based public engagement on climate change requires a more careful understanding of the U.S. public's views on the issue as well as a reexamination of the assumptions that have traditionally informed public communication efforts. In this presentation, Nisbet reviews conclusions from his recent cover article at the journal Environment and discusses the implications of current research in the area.

- Some are even designated as World Heritage Sites because humans don't go there at all, while others have felt the effects of too much human influence.
- These 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites each represent an overlooked or at-risk facet of humanity's collective cultural heritage.
Famous physicists like Richard Feynman think 137 holds the answers to the Universe.
- The fine structure constant has mystified scientists since the 1800s.
- The number 1/137 might hold the clues to the Grand Unified Theory.
- Relativity, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics are unified by the number.
A new method promises to capture an elusive dark world particle.
- Scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) devised a method for trapping dark matter particles.
- Dark matter is estimated to take up 26.8% of all matter in the Universe.
- The researchers will be able to try their approach in 2021, when the LHC goes back online.
