Abstract:This essay encourages a reflective approach to communicating the urgency of global change issues. Recognizing that multiple factors shape personal intuitions and interpretations of the world; it seeks to highlight some of the entrenched paradigmatic assumptions that continue to reinforce misperceptions about humanity’s relationships to the natural world. Multiple critiques of how these misperceptions arise are summarized; and alternate proposals that encourage expanded comprehension of the integral role played by humans within nested eco-systems are considered. It concludes with a description of a communication strategy based on literal and metaphorical interpretations of the term “worldview;” employing immersive scien-tific visualizations to experientially expand perspectives on these critical issues.
