This Was the Decade Climate Scientists Stopped Being Polite

External News Details

The arrival of a fresh decade gives climate scientists like Kim Cobb, professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, an opportunity to look back on the last 10 years of alarming data on climate change. The focus is now on stronger warnings and direct engagement with policy makers. “You can see evidence of it in speech patterns as scientists communicate with the public,” Cobb says. “There’s none of this business we used to have of, ‘well, ‘I’m not a policy expert.’ People are digging their stake in the ground and saying here are a couple of options.” The same message comes through in a Washington Post story that also features Cobb's insights.
