Dear Water Institute Faculty, student and colleagues: Please see invitation from Cynthia Barnett below…
The University of Florida's Science Journalist in Residence program is pleased to present NO DOUBT: Journalist Jenny Staletovich on communicating climate change, uncertainty, and the future of Florida. Ms. Staletovich covers environment and science for Florida's largest public radio station, WLRN in Miami. Her recent climate stories have ranged from the ghost forests of Florida to scientists' challenge to explain uncertainty in predictions without suggesting doubt. Florida Chief Science Officer Tom Frazer interviews Ms. Staletovich on these topics and more from the stage of Pugh Hall Ocora at 6 p.m. Wednesday February 26th. UF's Science Journalist in Residence program is funded by the Office of the Provost, the Office of Research and the College of Journalism and Communications, with thanks to the Bob Graham Center for hosting.
