This handbook provides a brief history of the consensus on climate change. We’ll summarize the research quantifying the level of scientific agreement on human-caused global warming. We’ll examine what the public thinks about the consensus, and the misinformation campaigns that have sought to confuse people. We’ll look at how we should respond to misinformation and how best to communicate the consensus. Lastly, we’ll answer some of the objections to communicating the consensus.
