Science behind the fuss

Since I posted on a related topic before, I might as well follow it up with this excellent slide show by John Cullen (just found on slideshare). For me, the main ‘take home message’ is that, if scientists had done a better job of communicating more widely what they were finding (and if those findings had been more widely accessible), we might not be wasting time again on discussions about iron fertilization of the oceans as a ‘climate change mitigation strategy’.

This post was first published on Nature Network, which has since been discontinued. The post has been moved to SciLogs.

About steffi suhr

Once upon a time, I was an enthusiastic and hopeful biological oceanographer who did a bunch of work in the Antarctic. I was alternately wearing labcoats or extreme weather clothing and hard hats, but have long since swapped survival suits for dress suits and do science management, currently as the BioMedBridges project manager at the European Bioinformatics Institute. I still like to use my brain. I'm a German serial expat, currently - again - living in the UK.
