Real Scientists Addendum: Is climate change literally killing us?

Public policy, evidence, and a very specific case study on climate change. Nobody predicted this...


  1. During my week of exploring music psychology @RealScientists , we were discussing public policy and how scientists and indeed everyone should be thinking about influencing it. Examples were drawn from social policy and we were having a robust discussion on how evidence is used and also torqued to support partisan positions.
  2. To widen the debate, I brought up the example of climate change. This is a prime example of the work that natural scientists do needing to be used to create better public policy.
  3. As if on cue, this response came in. We then worked through 24 hours of evidence being presented but not accepted.
