Advancing our scientific understanding of climate change is critical to the sustainable use of marine resources in a warming ocean. Even in a perfectly observed and modeled ocean, however, building effective sustainable management and adaptation strategies will depend on how well climate science and research outcomes are integrated into public discourse. As a UC Revelle delegate representing Scripps at several UN climate meetings, and a member of the Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation, I am interested in finding new ways and collaborations to effectively bridge the gap between science and the public, and particularly enjoy working with policymakers, educators, and the media, as they shape our daily discourse on climate change. Below is a selection of some of these efforts.
