Climate Feedback - A Voice for Science in Climate Change Media Coverage

Climate Feedback, Climate Cafe, Climate Change Institute

With a vast amount of information available online, trying to figure out which information is credible — and which is not — is a real challenge. When so much of what we read falls outside our own areas of knowledge, how can we know which headlines and news articles are consistent with science?

Climate Feedback brings the expertise of the scientific community into the world of online climate coverage to provide readers and authors with rapid feedback about the content’s scientific credibility.

The initiative brings together an international network of climate scientists who use cutting-edge web annotation technology to provide collective reviews – we call them “feedbacks” – of influential web content on climate change.

Join us over pizza and drinks at the first Climate Café of the year and learn about what you can do to ensure the success of the Climate Feedback project.

Have your say on how we can improve the impact of our individual feedbacks, on the potential to feed these results into a “Trust Tracker” of influential media outlets, and on what steps we need to take to launch Climate Feedback in Australia.
