Think “Slack” for research groups and the AGU Fall Meeting

Imagine if you will 37 scientists and science communicators scattered throughout the LUMCON facility, all working on individual science storytelling projects. How could our host site keep up communication with everyone scattered across the labs and in the field? … For me, the use of Slack was a home run for the OCEANDOTCOMM workshop. It can be the same for the AGU Fall Meeting.

Fourth National Climate Assessment kicks off #ClimateFriday

Hopefully, the #ClimateFriday hashtag will bring everyone’s attention back to the science, back to communicating not just what the report is stating but why it matters to all. I know I will do my best to add a #ClimateFriday tweet to my Twitter feed every Friday – I hope you will post something in your social media accounts, too.

I’ll repeat: neither the United Nations of any international agency that works with refugees or climate change recognizes any particular definition.
