This issue and others will be discussed at the first Hot Air symposium in
Perth on Tuesday 24 March.  The theme of this first symposium is
communicating the science of climate change in a sceptical world.

 

Susannah Eliott, CEO of the Australian Science Media Centre, will be
chairing a session looking at who the credible experts are in climate
science. 

 

The panel includes Michael Hopkin who is science correspondent for the West
Australian. He was previously UK senior news reporter with Nature, the
international science journal, where he focused particularly on environment
and conservation issues. He is joined by CSIRO's Dr Kevin Hennessey, who has
been doing climate change research for over 20 years and is currently
leading the Adaptation, Risk and Policy team of the Climate Change Research
Group.  The third panel member, Maria Taylor, a print and documentary
journalist with many years of experience, is currently doing her PhD with
ANU on a project that reflects 20 years of tracking climate change
communication in Australia.

 

 Register for this symposium now. Early bird registration closes on Monday 9
March.
