This handbook outlines 12 practical principles for smarter communication about climate change uncertainties. Its purpose is to provide scientists, policymakers, and campaigners with the tools they need to communicate more effectively around climate change. The issue, according to the handbook’s creators, is that, although public debate often cites uncertainty as a reason to delay policy action, the reality is very different: Scientific papers have shown that greater scientific uncertainty provides a greater, rather than lesser, impetus for climate mitigation.
