About the event

We want to use this event to discuss a short commentary in Nature by Kevin Anderson about the duality of climate science (

The author has since then also launched a website called "Climate Uncensored" which includes a narration of a book chapter he wrote on "The New Denialism" (

What is the role of scientists in climate change action?

In the commentary, Anderson writes "the job of scientists remains pivotal. It is incumbent on our community  to communicate our research clearly and candidly to those delivering on  the climate goals established by civil society; to draw attention to  inconsistencies, misunderstandings and deliberate abuse of the  scientific research."

We want to discuss how we see our own roles in taking climate action, how we see the potential of carbon removal, and the need for more 'unpalatable' strategies.

Closer to the time we'll share the reading materials and the Zoom link.

The time for this event is 5PM Central European Time, which is 8 AM for GMT-8 (e.g. in Corvallis).

Hope to see you there!!
