Organizers of the CFAES-co-hosted Understanding Algal Blooms: State of the Science Conference have extended the registration deadline to Wednesday, Sept. 7. The event is Sept. 15 in Toledo.

The Associated Press has revised its Stylebook entry on climate change. “We are adding a brief description of those who don’t accept climate science or dispute the world is warming from man-made forces,” said a post yesterday on AP’s Definitive Source blog. “Our guidance is to use ‘climate change doubters’ or ‘those who reject mainstream climate science’ and to avoid the use of ‘skeptics’ or ‘deniers.’ ” CFAES, Ohio State, and many if not most American newspapers and other news outlets follow AP style.
