Climate Science Rapid Response Team

Climate Science Rapid Response Team (CSRRT)

The Climate Science Rapid Response Team or CSRRT is a match-making service to connect climate scientists with lawmakers and the media. The group is committed to providing rapid, high-quality information to media and government officials.

Climate Science Rapid Response team member scientists are chosen to cover a wide array of topics related to Climate Science. They have been selected based upon their publications in professional peer-reviewed scientific journals.

There is a wide gap between what scientists know about climate change and what the public knows. The scientists of the Climate Science Rapid Response Team understand that better communication can narrow this gap. The media is in the best position to deliver accurate science information to the general public and to our elected leaders but only when they have access to that information. The Climate Science Rapid Response Team is committed to delivering that service. We are advocates for science education.

Media and government officials are encouraged to send requests using the inquiry form.

That information will immediately be sent to four people: Dr. John Abraham, Prof. Scott Mandia, Professor Michael Ashley and Dr. Jan Dash. These four “matchmakers” will immediately forward the inquiry to those scientists with the most appropriate expertise. An authoritative response from one of the Climate Science Rapid Response Team scientists will be returned to the inquirer either directly or via one of the four matchmakers.
