Webinar: US public’s perceptions, knowledge, and attitudes toward ocean acidification

[Originally disseminated by OCB]

Dear Ocean Acidification Research Community,

As the study of ocean acidification (OA) continues to gain momentum, policymakers and journalists will be looking to you, the scientists, for answers. How are changes in ocean chemistry likely to affect ecosystems and the human communities that depend on them? When can we expect to see effects? Where have we seen effects already, and why?

Ultimately, they’ll be asking such questions on behalf of their constituencies – the voting public and media consumers. Keeping the public in mind as your ultimate target audience will prove critically important. To that end, Lisa Dropkin of Edge Research has conducted extensive public polling research to help gain a better understanding of the US public’s perceptions, knowledge, and attitudes toward ocean acidification. COMPASS is proud to partner with Dropkin on a webinar summary of these polling results, originally commissioned by the Consultative Group on Biological Diversity (CGBD).
