A new award, the AGU Climate Communication Prize, has been established to recognize excellence in communication on climate change, to highlight the importance of scientific literacy and message clarity, and to foster understanding of and respect for science-based values.
The $25,000 cash award is sponsored by Nature’s Own, a company based in Boulder, Colorado, that specializes in the sale of minerals, fossils and decorative stone specimens. Any AGU member scientist is eligible to receive the AGU Climate Communication Prize. Nominations are being accepted through 30 September. The award will be presented during AGU’s 2011 Fall Meeting in San Francisco, 5-9 December.
