We like to frame climate change as a black and white issue: are you with us or against us? Is it our fault, or is it all natural? Are we screwed, or is there nothing to worry about? Is the polar ice melting or growing?
In this DotTalk from bluedot 2019, Tamsin Edwards tells the real story of climate science – how opposites can coexist and the importance of looking at the shades of grey. This is a personal journey into the science and the life of a scientist – how climate science works, how to deal with tribal battles for the climate change narrative, and how we as scientists try to make sense of a staggeringly complex planet.
