The cre­ation and devel­op­ment of this data­base would not have been pos­sible without the kind sup­port of Talking Climate partner the Understanding Risk group at Cardiff University (spe­cific­ally Nick Pidgeon’s Climate Leader Professorial Fellowship from the Economic and Social Research Council).

The data­base incor­por­ates many entries from the lists main­tained by the Nottingham University School of Sociology and Social Policy (also a Talking Climate partner) and the Centre for Climate Change Communication.
