Skip to comments.CS Monitor: Public Needs Hollywood's Help to Understand Climate Change
Posted on 03/17/2010 12:26:12 PM PDT by 198ml
Of all the claims made in the ongoing debates over environmental issues and global warming, the assertion that the public hasn't been told or told enough about climate change is laughable at best. But that's what Gregory Lamb wrote in The Christian Science Monitor March 15.
What had Lamb troubled was that the American public's concern for global warming is at its lowest level years. According to a new Rasmussen poll, just 28 percent of Americans think it's a serious problem. To Lamb and the scientists he interviewed, that means the message isn't getting through, and scientists must look to new means of publicizing their work.
"The importance of getting the word out has science organizations scrambling to explore news channels, from souped up websites to asking Hollywood for help," he wrote.
"One effort ... will recruit Hollywood to help scientists tell their stories. NAS (National Academy of Sciences) and the University of Southern California will team up to draw on USC's expertise in film, TV, websites, and video games. The partnership will be the first between a federal agency and a film school."

28% think Global Warming is dangerous.
The rest of us think it’s an EFFING HOAX and will Treat it as SUCH!!!
Since when did the CS Monitor hire such IDIOTS??
****The partnership will be the first between a federal agency and a film school.****
Where has he been living for the past 50 years???? Has he never heard of Public Broadcasting or Hollywood?
Someone put in a call to Tom Hanks...
Hollyweird needs the publics help to learn how not to be a whore/shill for Sneakyman Inc.(big/Gov/Bank/Drug/Def).
The Day After Tomorrow has already been done.
I would not listen to ANYTHING that Hollywood had to say...there is nobody out there that I admire enough to listen to. They are all spoiled brats just like our current president.
Yes. Like Tom Hanks can “help” us to understand WW2 in the Pacific and “Unsolved History” can “help” us understand the
Aztecs teraing out the hearts of 2,000 sacrificial victims in one year.
Politically correct history makes me sick to my stomach.
Ditto to politically correct science.
How ‘bout a remake of 1983 “Easy Money”? Some more zombie movies would be good too!
I'm going straight to the expert on this. What's a "souped up" website? Does it run faster than an ordinary website? Does it pass out from exhaustion after a couple miles?
So another so-called “journalists” refuses to see what was revealed in the CRU emails, the amateurish IPCC report or the admissions by Phil Jones that “there has been no signifivant warming since 1995”.
AGW is real and we must redouble our efforts to fool people!
Ah yes ...We need more Hollywood Crap-a-ganda
Like I am going to be swayed by a bunch of high school dropouts about the merits of a subject scientists can’t agree on.
...the assertion that the public hasn't been told or told enough about climate change is laughable at best. But that's what Gregory Lamb wrote in The Christian Science Monitor March 15.So much for the CSM. Thanks 198ml.

I was listening to a roundtable discussion on NPR concerning Hollywood’s role in the science in movies. They all agreed that the science in “The Day After Tomorrow” was laughable but it was necessary to get the public “interested in ‘climate change’”.
