ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the need for climate change communicators to use the proper framing to provide the people with accurate information about the environmental conditions. The elements of framing in action which include competing policy mechanisms and the purchase of carbon offsets measures are cited. The author explains the benefits of the cap-and-trade system and points out the need for climate change advocates to disclose the right information to the people.
