The science of when science doesn’t matter (and what to do about it)
Why does society make such painfully slow progress on issues that have such huge consequences, like climate change? The science seems so overwhelming. But until most of society participates, problems this big won’t be solved. Conservatives, liberals, North, South, urban, rural, religious, areligious, etc., etc., will all need to participate. Activating this diverse cross section is going to require a fundamentally new approach to problem solving.
