The Climate Change Playbook: 22 Systems Thinking Games for More Effective Communication about Climate Change

The Climate Change Playbook: 22 Systems Thinking Games for More Effective Communication about Climate Change by Dennis Meadows & Linda Booth Sweeney & Gillian Martin Mehers

Advocates and teachers often find it difficult to communicate the complexities of climate change, because the people they are trying to reach hold so many mistaken assumptions. They assume, for example, that when climate change becomes an obvious threat to our everyday lives, there will still be time enough to make changes that will avoid disaster. Yet at that point it will be too late. Or they assume we can use our current paradigms and policy tools to find solutions. Yet the approaches that caused damage in the first place will cause even more damage in the future.

A Survival Guide to the Misinformation Age: Scientific Habits of Mind

A Survival Guide to the Misinformation Age: Scientific Habits of Mind by David J. HelfandWe all swim in a sea of Big Data, dangerously vulnerable to the unscientific thinking that now replaces the critical faculties we used to rely on. We seek simple explanations where complexity is required. But as we endeavor to solve global problems of energy, food, and water shortages, a planetary biodiversity crisis, and emerging threats to our public health, the development of scientific habits of mind becomes even more essential for our survival. We fear numbers and prefer neat and simple solutions to complex problems, but scientific reasoning plays a central role in combating misinformation...
