  • Climate change and the integrity of science

    We are deeply disturbed by the recent escalation of political assaults on scientists in general and on climate scientists in particular.

  • Climate change: Enough science, now for the politics

    Science can prove global climate change is happening, but it won't tell us what to do about it, says professor of climate change, Mike Hulme. Climate change raises many questions about development goals and practices. These can only be resolved through widespread social deliberation and hard political negotiation. Simply more or 'better' science won't be enough. The idea that humans are changing ...

  • Water security and climate change: how science can help

    Policymakers need better information about the regional impact of climate change on water supplies, and on ways of adapting to it. For centuries, food production — and thus social development — has depended heavily on access to the water needed to grow crops or rear livestock. Having enough water is only part of the issue, however: it must also be available when and where it ...
