What Role Do Bio-Indicators Play in the Public's Understanding of Climate Change and Global Warming?

Haidi Jamal Abdulah

Abstract: The demand for public understanding of climate change and global warming are essential steps in making solutions or adaptations to global warming and climate change. Current discussions about the public understanding of science suggest that factors such as cognitive dissonance and the trust-gap hypothesis pose challenges in communicating science to public audiences. This article will focus on two main points. Firstly, to what extent bio-indicators play an important role in the understanding of the public about climate change and global warming. Secondly, what is the role scientists have in order to provide excellent information and knowledge to the public by researching or studying the effects of CC and GW on bio-indicators and how scientists are trying to create a link between amateur naturalists, phenology and the public.

Keywords: Climate change, global warming, bio-indicators, Phenology, pubic undressing of climate change
