hollywood, climate change and public attitudes to risk

Andrew Revkin asks if Hollywood can help change public attitudes to global warming. He wishes it could, but doubts it will.

There’s simply too much evidence that the fundamental characteristics of the rising human influence on climate are a very bad fit for how humans absorb and respond to risks.

There's an excellent series of comments from people with a strong interest in climate science and communications - Michael Zimmerman, David Roberts, David Ropeik, Matthew Nisbet, Anthony Leiserowitz, Gavin Schmidt, Andrew Freedman, Robert Brulle and Randy Olson - that appears below the post.
