With Valentine's Day coming up next week, and climate scientists continuing to come under relentless attacks by climate skeptic groups, a new campaign has sprung up to show some love for the scientists. The brainchild of Climate Nexus, a climate change strategic communications organization, the "I Heart Climate Scientists" campaign has a Facebook page where people are submitting photos of themselves and/or their pets with signs supporting climate scientists. Supporters are also being urged to use the Twitter hashtag #iheartclimatescientists.
Jeff Nesbit is the executive director of Climate Nexus, a project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors in New York that focuses on climate change and clean energy communications. Nesbit was previously the director of legislative and public affairs for the National Science Foundation, a strategic communications consultant and a national journalist.
