Why are more Australians becoming climate sceptics? How should we use
science to communicate about climate change and other risky environmental
issues? Can we do it badly? How can we do it well?


Come along to this special NSW ASC event and find the hot tips from the Hot
Air symposia convened by ASC over the last 18 months. Convenor of the Hot
Air symposia, Jenni Metcalfe, will lead an informal discussion on
communicating climate change and other relevant issues. This is a taster for
the workshop being convened the following day in association with ASC
("Climate Change - Communicating the Science". see www.iap2.org.au/events)
