Image of typeset table. Understanding climate change. Understanding climate change through science. I believe in science more than other forms of information that are out there Iain, ski field manager. I accept the scientific consensus that climate change and the human effects are a real thing Patrick, international tourist I do believe in the science, I think the science speaks quite clearly…I mean people that don't believe in the science, I think, are crazy Elizabeth, ski field manager.
The scientist could be sponsored by, their research could be sponsored by an oil company or whoever and so they're coming from a certain bias, and I would take that into account Rupert, ski guide. Understanding climate change through the media. Well the media, again from personal experience, loves a negative story, so I think they're always going to take it with scare tactics to sell papers essentially.
From my experience, the second the media gets hold of something it immediately becomes more grandiose…the media is very selective because it's after a good story…they're not balanced and I don't think they ever will be in that regard because it's not their aim Nick, community member. What I see is more turbulent weather patterns but is that a function of reporting or is it a function of reality? Understanding climate change through social interactions. I don't try to convert people that are skeptical because I think that it becomes too personal…it's also very threatening to people because often it's seen as a criticism of their lifestyle and also, you know, it's not like, I still fly places and I still go skiing, you know I don't feel like I'm in a position where I can tell everybody else how to change their behavior Jenna, community member.
It's hard because some people are saying there's no climate change, so we don't talk to those people because you can't get a balance Hazel, international tourist. Understandings of climate change through personal experience. Well, I used to believe in it, we used to live on a ski field…they had a number of lean years in terms of snow…I was a believer until the ski fields, not the ski fields but you know, the country had some harsher winters again, and so it appeared that that theory was not as valid for us in New Zealand anyway Julia, industry association manager. Yeah, it feels like it's everywhere: climate change is upon us.
For the last sort of 15 years I've noticed a definite change in the seasons, less predictability of what the conditions are going to be like, and the winter's aren't as good as they used to be for sure Jasper, international tourist. I think, regardless of the science, I think that just in my lifetime there has been an incredible change; it's happened from when I was young to now…there was a lake in the park and that lake used to freeze every year and the whole community would go out skating; that now just doesn't happen…and that has happened quite rapidly Duncan, domestic tourist.
Barriers to understanding climate change. In 20 years' time I'll probably be in a rest home and it doesn't matter laughs. It's hard for individuals to know enough…people have enough to think about, you know; they feel like their worries and their life are big enough, without putting that on top of it Jenna, community member. I think some articles are good when they're talking to the right scientists, but it's hard for someone like myself to weed through what's accurate and what's not Cameron, domestic tourist.

Being fashionable involves a highly nuanced negotiation between these two poles. What are some examples of cultural lag that are present in your life? The symbols and language of a society are key to developing and conveying culture. As cultural diasporas or emigrant communities begin to introduce their cultural traditions to new homelands and absorb the cultural traditions they find there, opportunities for new and unpredictable forms of hybrid culture emerge.
