Research on climate involves scientists from many disciplines, and that support for such research has increased in recent years. Media exposure of vocal scientists involved in the climate change issue has also grown and, as a result, scientists may have a greater opportunity to influence societal decisions than they had in the past. The media, like many scientists, tend to given inadequate attention to the uncertainties that surround the scientific aspects of of global warming. As a result of the media’s search for extreme (i.e., spectacular) views on global warming, many scientists have become reluctant to share their research results with the media.
