Beware the Climate Gap

I wrote an article for Next Gen Journal on the climate gap: the space between current public opinion and scientific research. After years of denial, the public is finally realizing that climate change is having a serious effect on our lives. The environmental movement and scientific community have succeeded in raising awareness about global warming. But as science continues to move forward, more terrifying and contentious conclusions threaten to rekindle public paralysis and denial. Scientists should not temper what they research, but we need a third force that fills that gap between new science and current public understanding. This force must be able to produce actionable information that is embraced by the public and has credibility with scientists.
