CLIMATE CHANGE & THE APPLIANCE OF SCIENCE

Politicians and the public look to scientists to explain the causes of climate change and whether it , can be tackled - and they are queuing up to deliver. But, in an article for Society Guardian, Mike Hulme asks if we are being given the whole picture.

Hulme, a professor in the school of environmental sciences at the University of East Anglia and the founding director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, writes about "post-normal science", social value disputes and the meaning of scientific evidence. And he refers to Dennis Avery's new confusion-seeding clmiate change denial book.
