Last day to vote for Climate Change Communicator of the Year

Posted on 15 April 2011 by John Cook

Climate Change Communicator of the YearToday is the last day to vote for the George Mason University Climate Change Communicator of the Year. If you haven't voted yet, be sure to exercise your democratic right by voting for an individual and organisation. Skeptical Science is nominated in the organisation category. This is recognition of the SkS community effort which has employed every aspect of "new media" to communicate climate science - iPhone apps, Twitter-bots, Firefox Add-ons, tweetable rebuttals of climate myths, Android apps, multiple-level explanations of the science and high-rez graphics used by a number of other climate communicators (including NOAA and the U.S. Navy). All of this is only possible because of the passion and enthusiasm of the SkS community which is worthy of recognition, IMHO.

So don't forget to vote before the day is out and tell others who might be interested :-)

  2. Done. I'm not the smartest kid on the block and as soon as math beyond simple algebra gets into the picture I tend to lose the ability to follow the argument. But this site doesn't overwhelm me too often and its usually the first place I go each day when I get home from work in hopes that a new article has been posted. In communicating the essential ideas behind the science of climate change to the general public Skeptical Science is at the top.

    Response: Not that I'm anxious either but this is what the webpage now says: "The voting period has now closed. We will be announcing the results soon." You can sign up to be notified of the winner.
  9. Reminds me of an old Footrot Flast cartoon (for those who don't know it, it tells you more than you could ever want know about rural New Zealand, centered on a sheep dog called simply Dog) Dog is watching a pig give birth to a litter of piglets, all very excited about it as he counts them out. "One....Two....Uhm....LOTS AND LOTS" Get those votes in People!
