Dear Participants in the Regional Framework climate project:
Oregon Sea Grant recently posted three short videos which highlight some critical issues related to climate change at the Oregon coast. Those issues are flagged by the video titles (YouTube linked below):
. . . How Should We Adapt?
. . and the overarching goal of having Community Resilience.
The videos, intended primarily for those involved in or concerned about potential climate change effects in coastal areas, were produced with the cooperation of a range of climate researchers and coastal professionals who are interviewed on camera. Among them are Phil Mote and Peter Ruggiero of OSU, Jeff Weber of OCMP, and Mark Labhart, Tillamook County Commissioner. The themes of the videos emerged from surveys, interviews, and workshops conducted by Sea Grant and partners in the last few years.
I think you may find the perspectives and insights of these videos useful or provocative. And if you do, I invite you to forward the links to your peers.
In addition to these recent videos linked above, two older and short ones may be of interest to professionals:
Decision Making about Climate Change – Tony Leiserowitz, Yale Project on Climate Change
Effectively Communicating Climate Change – Susanne Moser, consultant
These latter two videos come from a blog featuring social scientists, called Communicating Climate Change.
