My column in Nature this week
I have a column in Nature this week about the soon-to-be released strategic plan for the US Global Change Research Program. In that column I talk about the encouraging steps this program is taking to craft a more realistic approach to generating useful climate science.
You always end up leaving stuff out when writing something like this, and there are a couple of points that I would have added if time/space had allowed. I may write more about those once the actual final draft is released (and that’s currently looking to be in late February).
I’ve outlined some of the shortcomings of the GCRP up ’til now in much greater depth in this journal article (PDF).
