Resources for Having a Conversation about Climate Change
A conversation about climate change that starts close to home can help influence the public perception of science and advance the dialogue around climate change.
AGU has launched a campaign to encourage scientists and the science-interested public to commit to having a conversation with a friend, neighbor, colleague or family member about how climate change is impacting local communities now, or how it may impact communities in the future. Sign on to show your support for speaking up about human-induced climate change.
