Posting this not specifically as a climate change issue although all of us will benefit of we have a good understanding of climate change, but to point out one of two critical problems with scientists explaining science. The second, and more noticeable I believe, is scientists continuing difficulty in making scientific explanations and knowledge clear and understandable to a population with an average 5th grade reading level. I’m not saying it’s easy or even possible with many scientific explanations, but is a goal to be strived for since we live in a world based on science. A recent very good example is The Gene. Take a gander of there’s time.
