This should be very good indeed, and MCFly would recommend anyone with any interest to get along if they can. The presenter is Dr Lorraine Whitmarsh, Cardiff University, of whom we have written previously (e.g. Carbon Literacy versus Carbon Capability). We will go, blog and do a bit of filming too.
Despite growing scientific agreement about the human causes of climate change, recent years have seen a clear decline in public belief in and concern about climate change. In the wake of recent controversies, many within the climate change community have expressed fears that the public has lost faith in climate science and scientists. However, I argue that the impact of individual events, such as ‘Climategate’, has been overstated, and that the decline in public concern is likely due to multiple factors and may be part of longer-term fluctuations in opinion. I also consider prospects for intentionally shaping attitudes to climate change.
