Howarth, Candice; et al. 2020: “Effectively Communicating Climate Science beyond Academia: Harnessing the Heterogeneity of Climate Knowledge.”

Howarth, Candice, Laurie Parsons, and Harriet Thew. 2020: “Effectively Communicating Climate Science beyond Academia: Harnessing the Heterogeneity of Climate Knowledge.” One Earth 2 (4): 320–24. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.oneear.2020.04.001.

‌"This Primer discusses the heterogeneous manner in which climate change messaging is received by different audiences, how social scientific approaches could help to better tailor climate change messaging to this varied landscape, and how attempts to close this gap must consider the emotional and affective dimensions of climate messaging. We explore how the use of narratives can enhance effective climate science communication and emphasize the importance of evidence-based advocacy in the current era of global challenges, uncertainty, and post-truth."

Pozo, C.; et al. 2020: “Equity in Allocating Carbon Dioxide Removal Quotas.”

Pozo, C., A. Galán-Martín, D. Reiner, N. MacDowell, and G. Guillén-Gosálbez. 2020: “Equity in Allocating Carbon Dioxide Removal Quotas.” Nature Climate Change. https://doi.org/1758-678X.

"The first Nationally Determined Contributions to the Paris Agreement include none mention of the carbon dioxide removal (CDR) necessary to reach the Paris targets, leaving open the question of how and by whom CDR will be delivered. Drawing on existing equity frameworks, we allocate CDR quotas globally according to Responsibility, Capability and Equality principles."
