Are You Thirsty for Better Climate Change Communication? | Mother Jones
[English major Chris Mooney] People are getting tired of the same old story about global warming. They often tune out warnings of impending catastrophe; but it's not like they trust the deniers, either. The trouble is, the standard global warming narrative is stale and alienating—and perhaps worst of all, stuck in the technical weeds.Kate Sheppard '06, Staff reporter at Mother Jones magazine - Sustainability at Ithaca - Ithaca College
