Review of UN Climate Panel Lacks Social Scientists
I'm always glad there's people out there willing to read the details of what is going on in every field. The NY Time's Dot Earth Blog today points out that the committee reviewing the work of the IPCC lacks any social sciences and rightly points out that some of the biggest problems of the IPCC has to do with its ability to assess the human element. That's what we study, I'm glad there are others recognizing the utility of these efforts. There's probably a lot more fields out there that could use more social scientists on staff, including those with political science degrees. More of this sort of criticism, please.
