Extremely interesting piece on climate change scientist who knows her storytelling (we need more of these!) - Manjana Milkoreit.
A quote from the +Think Progress
piece by Joe Romm.
If you are wondering how one becomes the world’s expert on climate change and “Game of Thrones” [aka GOT], the answer is two things. First, you write a 40-page scholarly paper, “Winter is Coming”: Can Game of Thrones change Climate Change Politics? Then you get Reuters to write a story about you, “Is ‘Game of Thrones’ aiding the global debate on climate change?”
Dr. Milkoreit’s paper is not online yet, but I have read a draft. A key point, as the conclusion states, is:
Humans are story-tellers. GOT is offering its mainly American audience a wealth of story-telling material that political actors are beginning to use to make interventions in ongoing debates about climate change.
