Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Extreme weather is  the primary way that people experience climate change. However, many people still don’t understand the basic scientific connections—that our  current emissions trajectory means future events will be increasingly more frequent and/or severe. 

This session will help advance climate communication. It will review the latest global research about the public understanding of climate change and extreme weather, highlight gaps and opportunities, and showcase advances and new tools (such as the Climate Shift Index) to quantify the role of climate change. Scientist, communication experts, and and journalists on the panel will discuss how attribution science can build confidence in climate reporting, and to communicate impacts on people, especially vulnerable populations.
