Climate Science Alliance Swoops into San Diego Comic-Con

The Climate Science Alliance was excited to join fellow panelists at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 to discuss how art can help us tell powerful stories about science and relate to our community. Art is a powerful tool for telling a story: whether it’s a fun and humorous romp or a deep and thought-provoking piece, art is one of the best methods we have of communication. In recent years, people in traditionally “non-art” fields like science and engineering have recognized how art connects with people in a meaningful way - thus, the acronym STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) has been changed to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, ART, and math). The Climate Science Alliance was e
