Climate science seems to have been taken over by politicians and the media. It is therefore essential to keep the debate alive on scientific principles, rather than popular hype.
This complex amalgam of scientific disciplines, called Climate Science, is replete with uncertainties and controversies. Politicians will proclaim that “The Science is settled”, because politicians do not want to deal with uncertainties. As scientists, we know that science is never “settled”. Scientific progress thrives on challenges and debate and it is up to science organisations to foster that.
