Science: A Weapon for the Good:  Andrei Natarov, PhD

Andrei studies oceanographic phenomena that affect climate variability and change. His main interest is understanding processes that take place in the tropical ocean and using this understanding to improve climate models and their ability to project the near future.

Like anyone else with a understanding of basic science, Andrei worries about the ongoing man-made climate change and deeply cares about its implications for our future, as well as what we can do to alleviate the devastating effects of the global warming, ocean acidification, pollution, the ongoing mass extinction, and other catastrophes caused by human activities.

But what Andrei finds more disconcerting, is human inactivity: we, as voters, allow science (the most powerful weapon ever known) to be largely neglected in policymaking. Andrei argues that to fully deploy science for the good of all of us, we need to find ways to improve the scientific literacy of our society.
