Superb article on science communication

Well worth five minutes of anyone’s time. Go read it. And here’s a nice satirical view of (sadly) what usually happens.

Both via Bad Science.

And while we’re on the subject, I’m still looking for nice archosaur photos for the Musings, and nice ‘anything biological at all’ photos for the new and improved (and very nearly here) Ask A Biologist. E-mails to the usual address please.

    The comments in that satire piece are really revealing. Things like “it would take hot summers and warm winters to convince me of global warming.” If people aren’t willing to look, or try to understand, there’s little hope that they will.

    That isn’t to say we should resign our efforts in science communication; but it is saying that (though evolution often receives similar opposition), I’m certainly glad I’m not working my way towards becoming a climate scientist.

      Sorry, not satire piece. The more serious of the two–little sleep last night.
