Reporting on Climate Change: Understanding the Science, 4th Edition
In the fourth edition of ELI's landmark book, Reporting on Climate Change: Understanding the Science, editors L. Jeremy Richardson and Bud Ward have created a guide for journalists – both reporters and editors – to help them understand and report on the scientific issues related to global climate change. Initially conceived to be exclusively for the members of the media, it has evolved over time as a resource also for formal and informal climate science educators and for other communicators needing a "plain English" grasp of climate science.
Replete with four-color charts, graphs, and graphics that explain the complex scientific issues, this new edition provides readers with timely updates to recent events in the ongoing climate debate, including the UK email hacking scandal, as well as new developments in the science itself. For reporters who are generalists rather than specialists in science or environmental writing, this guide provides an in-depth look at what we do know – and still don't know – about climate change, all in nontechnical terms.
