Speaking Science 2.0

Over at Framing Science, I have a post describing how James Hansen’s efforts to frame the scientific agenda on climate change are proving once again influential, as evidenced by a news feature last week at Science. In commentaries and media interviews, Hansen is using the frame device of “reticence” to challenge the assumptions applied by the IPCC in arriving at predictions of seal level rise. Joined by other climate scientists, Hansen backs up his efforts with scientific papers recently published at leading journals.
