Yale Center for Environmental Communication: Is Climate Change to Blame?

Event Date: 
June 12, 2024

After an extreme weather event, people often ask: is climate change to blame? Join the Yale Center for Environmental Communication for an insightful discussion on attribution science — a field focused on determining the influence of human-induced climate change on extreme weather events. 

This discussion will be moderated by Dr. Jennifer Marlon, Director of Data Science for the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication (YPCCC) and Senior Research Scientist at the Yale School of the Environment, and will feature a panel of expert climate scientists and communicators, including Dr. Friederike Otto, Co-Lead of World Weather Attribution and Senior Lecturer in Climate Science at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment, Dr. Andrew Pershing, VP for Science at Climate Central, and Dr. Laura Thomas-Walters, Research Specialist and Deputy Director of Experimental Research at YPCCC.

Learn how scientists establish these connections and discover effective ways to communicate the impact of human-caused climate change on extreme weather events, drawing on message testing research from YPCCC.

When: Noon - 1 pm ET, Wednesday, June 12, 2024
