Marshall Shepherd: Connecting atmospheric science and society

By Dawn Stover, June 28, 2019

In this interview, meteorologist and University of Georgia professor J. Marshall Shepherd talks about why climate literacy remains low in the United States, and how he tries to overcome climate misinformation and skepticism. He describes the degree to which extreme weather events such as major wildfires, hurricanes, and intense rainfall can be attributed to recent climate change – and discusses the global actions that must be taken to address the climate emergency. He explains why some TV meteorologists avoid talking about climate change and remain skeptical that human activities are driving it.
