if you cant express yourself in numbers…
Painting is an Art – So is Representing Numbers
The considerable amount of data associated with climate change makes for an difficult task to communicate – especially to decision makers, used to problems that are not as diverse and cross sectional as climate change is.
There are substantial amounts of data, multiple models of differing forms and a varying polycentric paradigm that makes transnational comparisons further confused.
It is important to engage decision makers with the numbers, not as outputs – rather as inter-connected variables.
A crucial barrier to decision making is uncertainty. In policy fields there is the precautionary principle. In the field of climate change there is uncertainty, but it needs to be embraced, accepted, rather than feared.
There is a seeming monotony to the measurement of emissions. This results in emissions inventories being provided annually, methodologies outlined – expressed and understood to varying scales. Regrettably these inventories rarely tell us much about the underlying problem.
