"Communicating Climate Change on Television"
How do you translate the abstract science and politics of global warming
to television, a highly visual medium that demands a lot of emotion and
action? Climate programs tend to fall into predictable genres, ranging
from "gloom and doom" exploitations of disaster to "eco-fantasies" about
the environmental future. In this talk, Evan Hadingham, Science Editor
of the PBS NOVA series, will discuss NOVA's approach to producing shows
about global warming, highlighting the special challenges of covering
this vital subject. The take-home message is that climate programs can
be successful without relying on "disaster porn."
The program begins at 4 PM; refreshments at 3:45 PM.
Parking available at the Campus Center Garage.
