Channel Hunt: 10 Ways to Present Climate Change Science on YouTube

GenR has selected ten YouTube Climate Change channels to demonstrate different styles of presentation of scientific research on Climate Change to YouTube audiences. In a recent interview featured on GenR with the researcher Joachim Allgaier ‘YouTube — Fix Your AI for Climate Change! An Invitation to an Open Dialogue’ (Allgaier and Worthington 2019) the recommendation was made to scientists working in fields related to climate change to post videos about their research on YouTube to ensure the voice of science is heard on this significant communications platform. To help scientists get to grips with how to engage with YouTube audiences GenR is offering up this varied selection of example climate change science channels.

Modeling Low Carbon Energy Futures for the United States

A new project will create an Open Energy Outlook for the United States to complement the US Annual Energy Outlook, which produces modeled projections of domestic energy markets. The Open Energy Outlook will utilize an open source energy system optimization model to examine US technology and policy pathways for deep decarbonization. Energy models provide a self-consistent framework to evaluate the effects of technology innovation, shifts in fuel prices, and new energy and climate policies. The focus on open source code and data is intended to foster community involvement in the effort, allow researchers to interrogate the model and reproduce published results, and engender trust within the broader community of modelers, analysts, and decision makers. The project has been funded by the Sloan Foundation.
