Communicating about climate change: Informing the public about the threats we face – and what to do about them.

October 9, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Oct 9th from 11:30 pm – 1:00 pm

with Nathan Crabbe

Florida is particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change such as extreme weather and rising sea levels. But the way we communicate about climate change can increase divisions and make it more difficult to reach consensus on solutions. Nathan Crabbe, former opinion editor for The Gainesville Sun, discusses the challenges of informing people about the climate threats facing the state in his new role as editor of The Invading Sea website.
