Global Climate Change Updates


Tips for Speakers

  • Speak slowly, clearly, and sufficiently loud
  • Don't wander. Make clear points in an organized way.
  • Make part of the presentation interactive, even if it's just asking questions of the audience
  • Steer clear of "red flags" -- statements that engender unproductive side debates, such as the issue of the extent of ice cap melting, or whether recent hurricanes were caused by global warming. There are better, less controversial, examples of global climate change effects.
