Abstract

Science and the Public might be appropriate for effective policy making, but the presupposition of many scientists is that it is the scientific dissimilarities that will and should engage the public's Robert White raises some important issues in his article attention. The ozone depletion case is also particularly "Contact! Science and the Public" (White 1994). His com- instructive because of the mix-up over the National Aero- ments on the dangers of overselling the predictive powers of nautic and Space Administration's computerized dumping future climate change science are particularly important in a of "anomalous" data and the increasing realization among funding context where research is increasingly legitimated scientists of just how intimately related climate change and in terms of its policy usefulness or relevance. It is ironic that ozone depletion are. It is an excellent opportunity, then, not in the same issue of the Bulletin McPherson, in describing just to "educate the public," but also to open up for debate the reorganization of the National Meteorological Center, the way in which the particular framing of scientific under- should write that "There are spectacular opportunities to apply the benefits of climate research and operational standing shapes what knowledge is generated and
