Can We Do This?

Watch this.

Sustainability is in some ways a harder problem than proving a theorem, no matter how subtle the theorem. And the global conversation has bad actors, looking out for their own interests while pretending to argue for the common interest. I don’t think crowdsourcing informed wisdom is going to be easy. But what other choices are on offer?

    two possible answers:a) no, because there's too much money involved.b) yes, it's already being done but ignored.

    It is called teaching. There was a time when every Ph.D. had 2 responsibilities. One was to lead their field by doing original research. The other was to guide their field by teaching. Those to whom much is given, much is expected. Sorry guys, tuition does not cover the full societal cost of a graduate education. One way or another, all universities are subsidized.We should go back to the concept that every Ph. D. should teach. It should be part of the payback for what society has invested in your education. If you have a PhD, and do not teach, then you should lose your Ph. D. I do not care if it is one day a month at the local elementary school, or blogging, those with knowledge, need to pass it on.If every PhD teaches, it will raise the volume of correct information in the various channels.

    Of all the scientist blogs on the implications of science, Bart's was the best place so far. Mathematicians and molecular biologists have an advantage over climatologists in terms of controversy. Sustainability is a good topic.
