New editorial – In defence of science: Making facts great again

Jonathan Bamber, the Principle Investigator of the GlobalMass project, has recently written an opinion piece for Al Jazeera.

In light of America’s recent withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, Jonathan argues that accurate and fact-based communication of climate science has never been more urgently needed. He concludes that: “Science has no political affiliation, nor can it be bent to your will. You don’t renegotiate with physics and you aren’t about to “win” a deal with chemistry. We must not let rhetoric, vested interests or the blind dismissal of the overwhelming scientific consensus divert us from what we know is the right course of action ethically, scientifically and economically“.
