Most people are seeing the impact of climate change in their daily lives. Whether it’s hotter summers, more intense storms or devastating wildfires.
Climate science, and science in general, has become a part of our daily conversation. Yet, many people struggle to understand and discuss the climate.
There are those who wish to change that.
On the next Charlotte Talks, we speak with authors, educators and journalists about how they tackle these complex topics, how they break them down for the public, and how they deal with misinformation and disinformation.
