Yesterday I listened to a number of great talks about Extreme Climate Events in California at this workshop at Scripps. The workshop was part of a task force issued by the governor to better understand climate change impacts for the state, and two of the conference speakers will be reporting in Sacramento tomorrow.
I love talks like these that are tailored to the public, because they make issues I don’t know much about more accessible, and I also learn new communication strategies. I heard a great one from Scripps Professor Dan Cayan yesterday.
Climate change is sort of like the stock market. You don’t trust a single model to give you a perfectly accurate prediction. Instead you look at a range of models and their projected trends.
My thought for the day- think on it!
