Experts said at the Science Popularization Strategy Salon held by the China Association that efforts to disseminate public knowledge about “dual carbon” through science popping activities will help China reach its carbon peak by 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2060. It says it helps speed up the process of getting there. Environmental Sciences on Mondays (CSES).
Chen Ling, secretary general of the China Science Writers Association, said that holding such a salon is a good form of science-popping efforts, allowing experts from different fields to come together. rice field.
“This reflects the CPC Central Committee and the State Council’s call for people’s technological progress through science-popping efforts,” Cheng said in his opening remarks at the salon.
Hou Xuesong, deputy secretary general of CSES, said he hopes more talented researchers can join the cause of pop science to improve the quality of work. “The precedent for gaining public support for a policy is to make them understand the policy,” he said.
“Reducing carbon emissions by a few percent is good, but the public hardly cares about it. We care more about what we need to show them: reducing carbon emissions and connecting it to their daily lives.”
Jia Hepeng, professor of environmental and communication studies at Suzhou University, shared a study his team completed in April this year. Compared to the United States, fewer people in China refuse to believe in climate change, and government policies generally have more support than in the United States. This has laid a stronger foundation for implementing carbon reduction policies.
Jia points out that those who refuse to believe in climate change are “aligned” with those who refuse to accept that smoking is bad for their health and car exhaust is harming the environment. Did.
Yuan Jiashuang, deputy director of the National Climate Center, said more attention should be paid to pop science on carbon emissions, as the issue is relevant to so many aspects of society. Pop Science participants need to update their knowledge to keep up with the latest trends.
Zeng Fanxu, a professor of environmental studies at Tsinghua University, spoke of some of the shortcomings of current public efforts. “Many people tend to put a picture of a skinny polar bear on melting ice when explaining the concept of climate change, but the problem is that people care very little about polar bears, and when extreme heat hits them. It just means I care more about when it will end.” Zeng wants more readable works that can touch people’s hearts and truly move them.
