Prof Mark Berliner on ‘Climate Change, Uncertainty & Communication’
Professor Mark Berliner addresses how to communicate climate change in the context of risk and uncertainty. I wish I could hot link the video here, but there is no “share” at the site, so I can only provide the link.

Human Assessment of Risk of Loss
Not knowing a risk is not the same as being safe. If presented with the choice of either losing $500 with 100% certainty, or that of losing $1000 with 50% certainty and $0 with 50% certainty, many if not most … Continue reading
