The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine wants to clear misconceptions put out by individuals with high influence.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine are looking into a “quick response capability” to confront the misinformation told to the public about climate change.
One recommendation in a report from last month which was aimed at making it easier for experts to communicate climate issues, such as the undoubtedly real problems caused by global warming, effectively, is now the strategy for independent national academies. These academies advise the government on issues of science.
They did not mention President Donald Trump in the report. But the quick-response tactics being considered are aimed at the mischaracterizations of the science of climate done by highly influential people or groups, stated the “Climate Communications Initiative Strategic Plan.”
They can make policies that would make it possible for academics to give a response to issues that pertain to climate within 48 hours.
According to the report, the National Academies might choose to respond quickly in different scenarios, like when a statement that is made to the public contains information about the climate which is scientifically incorrect and may misinform or confuse them.
Also, the National Academies may decide to control the situation by communicating quickly when there appears to be significant potential for misinformation.
This report was formed by an independent advisory committee which the academies formed a year ago to look into communication on climate science.
In a tweet he posted this week, Trump indicated to millions of his that the severe cold spells being experienced in some parts of the country disprove the presence of global warming. “What the hell is going on with Global Warming? Please come back fast, we need you,” he tweeted.
