How To Talk to a Climate Ostrich

April 23, 2012


Richard Alley’s “Earth the Operator’s Manual” is more than a one-time PBS special, it is an ongoing project in climate education.
Part of that effort is a new series of short videos meant as ammo in the war of ideas in social media – ‘How to Talk to an Ostrich”. I’ll be posting more of these this week. The series is hosted of course, by Dr. Alley, one of Climate science’s most engaging communicators. I’ve featured Dr. Alley in a number of videos, such as the one embedded below.
