It’s a challenge to explain a complex science in a way that’s relevant to people’s lives. That’s why one of the world’s biggest science organizations, the American Geophysical Union, gives the Climate Communications Prize as a top award each year.

This year’s winner is Jennifer Francis with the Woodwell Climate Research Center.
