The Uncertainty Handbook

The Uncertainty Handbook

The Uncertainty Handbook provides scenarios and suggestions to help improve how we talk about climate change and handle scientific uncertainty.

  • Have you ever struggled with the communication of climate change uncertainties?
  • Are you frustrated by climate sceptics using uncertainty – inherent in any area of complex science – as a justification for delaying policy responses?

This handbook (a collaboration between Climate Outreach and University of Bristol, authored by Dr Adam Corner, Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, Dr Mary Philips and Olga Roberts) is a clear, easy-to-read and short guide to talking about climate change with those who might be less engaged/sceptical.

Download the handbook to learn more about 12 practical and easy-to apply principles for smarter communication about climate change uncertainties.
