In January, ALC Master’s student, Alissa White, presented at the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. White writes, “I joined about 2,000 people who are mostly weather scientists and climate physicists for their 98th annual meeting. This long-standing scientific community made the theme for this year’s meeting “Transforming communication through co-production”. There was a clear acknowledgement that the science they have been working on for so long is now extremely politicized by climate deniers. This leads to many challenges in communicating climate science, but social science research which indicates that co-producing climate knowledge overcomes those communication challenges. So these traditional scientists are aware that they need to learn how to invite stakeholders into the research process.”
