Communicating Climate Change: Creating Behavioural Change

The issue of how we communicate climate change is an interesting one. In fact, the further I look into 'messaging' , 'frames' and 'language disipline' the more important it looks.

Today i have found three more interesting pieces on the topic, all by Lisa Delling and Susan Moser who work for the Environmental and Social Impacts Group, NCAR, Boulder Colorado.

Firstly, a powerpoint presentation,

'Confused and Scared and Deeply in Denial'.
Secondly, a journal article

'Making the Climate Hot: Communicating the urgency and challenge of global climate change'
Finally, this book chapter

'Communicating the Risks of Global Warming: American risk perceptions, affective images and interpretive communities'.

In a previous post I linked to few interesting pieces of work on this topic, these are here, i also found a good talk about marketing here, for the die hard's all relevant posts on my blog can be found here.

An excellent and readable book that starts by engaging people with climate change on the basis of their core values [e.g. Winner, Traditionalist] is George Marshall's "Carbon Detox - your step-by-step guide to getting real about climate change" [ISBN 978-1-85675-288-6], and then dealing with "the carbon bottom line" - what your individual footprint is, and how to reduce it significantly without resorting to tokenism.

An enjoyable, enlightening and useful read for communicating climate change and creating behavioural change.
