Whose Truth? Evaluate Experts, Recognize Non-Science, Tell Better Science & Environmental Stories - Participant Media [Sponsored Session]

  • Thursday - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Pacific Room
  • #ONA15truth

Do you shy away from stories about science? Worry about making global climate stories fit with local coverage? Struggle to make your audience care about science and environmental topics? This interactive discussion will help you accurately communicate scientific information and give you practical ideas to ramp up your science and environmental storytelling. We will examine the importance of science and environmental journalism in a click-bait world, see how the same scientific study can be spun by different merchants of doubt, and learn how to find trustworthy sources, identify motives and avoid misinformation. Come to this session for tips, best practices and advice, as well as an open forum for discussion and analysis.
