Pilot Results

Last year's pilot program was designed to answer climate science questions for 10 days during the Copenhagen Climate Negotiations (7-18 December, 2009).   The plan was to solicit help from AGU's vast body of scientific experts who were willing to be "on call" and respond to media members' e-mails, 24 hours a day.   With the overwhelming support of over 700 climate scientist volunteers, 54 responses were written to questions from writers and editors at 27 different media outlets.

This year's Climate Q & A Service is being offered over an extended period of three months and is expected to draw many questions after the success of last year's pilot.   If you are a member of the media and have a specific question regarding climate science, please contact an expert at questions@agu.emailcenterpro.com with the following information:

  • Your question
  • Your media organization
  • Context of your article
  • Whether you are under a tight deadline – if so, note your deadline at the top of your email and we will do our best to meet it.   Questions received off-shift will be held for the next shift.
