Data Interpretation Guideline

DO use analogies appropriately


Analogies with climate in other places or at different times in the past can be helpful in internalizing what changes mean and communicating these to a broader audience. There are, however, limits to the realism of any analogy.

This DO will provide examples of helpful analogies along with suggestions for how they can be communicated to avoid misinterpretation.
