Subject: [GreenYes] New book about communicating climate change
From: amy perlmutter <amy@aperlmutter.com>

I wanted to alert you to a new book called Creating a Climate for Change: Communicating Climate Change and Facilitating Social Change.  As a disclaimer, my friend, Susi Moser, is one of the editors. Susi is a research scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.   Amazon is listing it as $125! I can?t believe this is true, so check your bookstore and see what they say! 

Please feel free to forward this widely. I have been hearing about the birth and development of this book for two years, and it sounds like there is a lot of new information here, and that it is essential for anyone working on social change around environmental issues. From Amazon:

Book Description
The need for effective communication, public outreach, and education to increase support for policy, collective action and behavior change is ever present, and is perhaps most pressing in the context of anthropogenic climate change. This book is the first to take a comprehensive look at communication and social change specifically targeted to climate change. It is a unique collection of ideas examining the challenges associated with communicating climate change in order to facilitate societal response. It offers well-founded, practical suggestions on how to communicate climate change and how to approach related social change more effectively. The contributors of this book come from a diverse range of backgrounds, from government and academia to non-governmental and civic sectors of society. The book is accessibly written, and any specialized terminology is explained. It will be of great interest to academic researchers and professionals in climate change, environmental policy, science communication, psychology, sociology, and geography.
