Send us your examples of scientific uncertainty in the media
12 June 2012
Sense About Science is running a working group on Making Sense of Uncertainty with help from scientists across many areas – climate science, clinical research, natural hazard prediction, public health and epidemiology.
We want to test the material being put together by the scientists against real examples…
Have you read, heard or seen media coverage that misused scientific uncertainty? For instance, where commentators use scientists’ uncertainty to suggest that anything might be true.
If so, can you hunt out those examples? We’re particularly keen to look at examples relating to climate change, natural disasters, alternative therapies and planning for disease epidemics, but examples from any area of research will help.
Please send your examples to Tabitha Innocent at email@example.com.
