Climate change is one of the biggest issue facing everyone on the planet. It is also a problem that everyone, no matter what their age or job, can do something about in their daily life. In my opinion, it’s a real shame that people are still talking about whether it’s real or not instead of talking about what they are doing to make it better.
Totally with Angeline on this. There is exceptionally strong scientific evidence for climate change and it is a huge shame that vested political/corporate interests have downplayed this evidence.
On the other hand, some climate scientists have not behaved particularly well. If your work is funded by the taxpayer (i.e. the public) then you should not be at all reticent to share that work *and all of your data* with the public.
