Suzanne Shaw is Director of Communications at the Union of Concerned Scientists. For more than a decade, she has helped scientists communicate their research to decision makers and the public on issues including climate science, clean energy and transportation, sustainable agriculture, and nuclear weapons. She has developed public education materials for major studies on the local impacts of climate change in the Northeast, California, and the Great Lakes region and a groundbreaking report on the pathway to a clean energy future, Climate 2030: A National Blueprint for a Clean Energy Future. Shaw co-led the Union of Concerned Scientists’ effort to expose the abuse of science by the Bush administration, which garnered coverage in media outlets throughout the nation and around the world, and she helped build and launch the UCS Center for Science and Democracy. She is a co-author of Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living. Prior to joining UCS, Shaw led the communications efforts at Project Bread, a nonprofit organization fighting hunger in Massachusetts.
