Det var välgörande att läsa detta (hela storyn här). Tänk om SVT, SR, DN, SvD, TV4 – och även Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet kunde ta lärdom? (Min understrykning nedan):
Chris Rapley, the museum’s director, told how the climate debate had been affected by leaked e-mails and overstatements of the dangers of global warming. He said: “We have come to realise, given the way this subject has become so polarised over the past three to four months, that we need to be respectful and welcoming of all views on it.”
Professor Rapley, a climate scientist and former director of the British Antarctic Survey research centre, said that the museum needed to remain neutral in order to be trusted: “The Science Museum will not state a position on whether or not climate change is real, driven by humans or threatening.“The climate science community, by and large, has concluded that humans have intervened in the system in a way that will lead to climate change. But that is their story. It’s not our story, so that can’t be ourconclusion. If we take sides we will alienate some of the people who want to be part of the discussion.
