A key route via which the public currently acquires climate science information is through the media. In 2011, a series of focus groups and a national opinion poll were conducted to assess the public’s reaction to climate science news articles and explore issues of trust in climate scientists. In this talk, Dr. Rosie Robison, Research Fellow at the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University will present the key findings of this important study, which gives interesting insights into how the public engages with climate change issues. Dr. Robison will also raise some wider questions about the differences (and similarities) between scientists’ and non-scientists’ attitudes to climate science.
