Abstract

This paper describes a new idea and methodology developed for overcoming problems linked to the climate changes science and how to make them effectively accessible by end users. In today’s scientific approach, communication, on climatic information and on climatic changes condition, has to be clear, accessible and perceptive to everyone, to definitely address the right interest on such problem. Results coming from climatic changes Research and Development projects, in addition to being accepted by policymakers, that have to take future decisions and practical actions to mitigate their possible negative effects, must also be recognized and believed by ordinary citizens that have to understand and accept restrictions, for example in energy consumptions, potentially affecting their habit of life. Accordingly, it will be necessary to regenerate policy-making so as to make it more direct and potentially open to networking interactive communication tools. The present work substantially deals with the problem of the outcomes communication both in the field of climatic studies both of climatic trend conditions, also at a long-term scale. Furthermore, it has been observed that one of the most widely discussed issues, in addition to that of the uncertainty of the climatic condition predictions, is the data/results communication to policy makers, stakeholders, environmental agencies, citizens, etc.
