Resource Author: John Sterman

This study describes how our mental models lead to biases when confronted with complex systems like climate and asserts that we need new modes of communication that include interactive simulations to convey risk. 
A study of highly educated adults that shows widespread misunderstanding  about the science and impacts climate change and a discussion of the need for education and communication between scientists and nonscientists.
