Professor Scott Mandia on “Then and Now”


Then and Now.

I’ve sometimes wondered where climate policy leaves those like me in mathematical sciences snd quantitative engineering in terms of speaking out. We help build climate models, help reduce geophysical and environmental data, and can sometimes understand the implications of these better than some scientists do, e.g., the possibility of bifurcations and their implications. Still, the loud voices are the Mandias and the Manns and the Trenberths and the Schneiders. Where are we?

Are we too comfortsble in our jobs, far from the public eye, to educate? What are we afraid of? Or do we think we are too poor teachers to convey our knowledge and perspective?
