Center for Climate Communication

Welcome to the Center for Climate Communication  
The Center for Climate Communication conducts and promotes research on communicating climate issues, including climate variability and adaptation. We examine the meaning and presentation of climate reports from varied sources, such as TV news, social media outlets, governmental agencies, corporations and scientific laboratories. We study how the content and mode of presenting climate information influences how the general public reasons about uncertainty and risk, for instance, risk related to extreme events and conditions, such as wildfire, drought, and flooding. We work with varied stakeholders -- from different agencies, from different social and cultural groups and from different geographical regions -- to develop better ways to talk about and think about climate issues. We host and participate in outreach activities, and actively seek funding to support our research and educational activities. If you have questions about the CCC, email us at
"I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use the natural resources of our land, but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or to rob, by wasteful use, the generations that come after us." - 26th U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt 

Climate Feedback hosted by the Center for Climate Communication
Climate Feedback organizes a network of scientists from around the world to review influential climate change media coverage.
Its pedagogical mission is to: explain whether and why information is or is not consistent with the science, help internet users identify trustworthy information sources and provide feedback to editors about the credibility of information published in their outlets.
Dr. Emmanuel Vincent recently joined the Center, coming to us from MIT.
