How to be a trusted messenger on climate changedwigder

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:31:39 +0000

A recent study indicates that only 40 percent of Americans believe that they will be harmed personally by climate change.

In Montana and similar big-sky places across the U.S., outdoor recreation is core both to the local economy and a way of life.

Vacations are supposed to be spent in paradise — on sun-kissed beaches with palm trees gently swaying overhead and clear blue waters that extend to the horizon. This is a narrative (PDF) that many tourists have come to believe — and that industry marketers have nurtured in their advertising. But climate change is making it harder […](image)

Recently, the Gold Standard Foundation, a leading standards organization for climate mitigation projects, launched a first-of-its-kind program to certify the reduction in black carbon emissions when traditional cookstoves are replaced with more efficient ones.
