In this paper, the AA. review current research about public awareness, understanding, and opinions about existing climate research. They also review several initiatives that the agencies (NASA and NOAA) have taken to help improve climate science literacy. Their research coincides with other's findings in, suggesting that it is possible to improve climate science literacy and positive attitudes about modern climate research, via particular methods of communication. The AA. conclude with a call for collaborators to work with NASA and NOAA in the assembly of a "synergetic" new climate science communication and education infrastructure. Addressing the problem sinergistically through transdisciplinary collaborations increases the potential for success while enriching all those involved in climate literacy efforts
