Perilous Times for Science, Journalism, and Freedom // Published on Dec 20, 2017
Veteran journalist Dan Rather kicked off the 25,000 scientist New Orleans conference with his 2017 AGU Presidential Lecture. Link here, to his press conference, about 28 minutes long. For those with perhaps more time, the video of full talk here, about 59 minutes long.
I discuss highlights from this very keynote talk. Crucial topics include:
- 1) Science for the pursuit of Knowledge, and how humans are wired to be interested in science;
- 2) Journalism and Communication and the power of storytelling;
- 3) how Science and Journalism are both under siege; and
- 4) how we need a revolution in how we communicate science.
