I am increasingly concerned that both the climate change problem and its solution have been vastly oversimplified. My research on understanding the dynamics of uncertainty at the climate science-policy interface has led me to question whether these dynamics are operating in a manner that is healthy for either the science or the policy process.[1] I see a growing gap between what science is currently providing in terms of information about climate variability and change, and the information needed to understand and manage associated risks. – Dr. Judith Curry
