(Washington, DC) — The National Communication Association recently released a new video that features Dr. Emma Frances Bloomfield, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In the video, Dr. Bloomfield explains why the climate crisis has become a communication crisis: “The science is settled about climate change, but we haven’t been able to come together as a community, a nation, or to talk to one another, connect on this topic, and make progress.” Dr. Bloomfield also offers strategies for speaking with climate skeptics about climate change and for addressing climate change misinformation online or in person. 

The video is part of a larger collection called Concepts and Praxis in Communication, which includes videos that address a wide variety of communication-related issues.
