Hi Everyone - I was just reading this interview with the outgoing director of OSTP, John Holdren. His response to the question below caught my eye.  Can anyone on the SciSIP list point me to the studies that were used (or possibly used) for him to make this claim? Thanks, Steve Fiore Conference Chair, Science of Team Science 2017 June 12-14, Clearwater Beach, Florida Scientific... [Read more]

Steve,                 There are several reports, but the one that comes to mind and that has Bill Gates activities behind it is the Bipartisan Policy Center, where John Holdren (if memory serves) was active before going to OSTP.  You can see here for more details as an illustration but they have many reports in this same realm --                      Debbie...

Fission was thought to be too cheap to meter; now fission power plants are closing because they are not cost competitive with natural gas and we still do not have spent fuel rod storage that is satisfactory from a political perspective. Plus, fission fuel reprocessing was rejected because it was feared that it would promote nuclear weapon proliferation.  Has anyone seen a cost analysis for nuclear fission power to identify where the costs are and how modular reactors diminish those costs? Fusion is far more complex than fission; it boggles the mind of an engineer how it could be made... [Read more]

Fusion has long been a modest program in DOE's Office of Science (SC). See's call for tripling energy funding is fairly common among those calling for the decarbonization of the energy supply. Of course the Trump Administration does not share this view. The fusion program may well be a budget cut target. David At 04:32 PM 3/... [Read more]

Dear Colleagues,In response to growing interest in establishing science policy fellowships and other immersive mechanisms to engage scientists in policy processes, AAAS conducted a landscape analysis of such activities around the world. Sponsored by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the project affirmed global demand to strengthen connections between science and policy, highlighted factors for productive engagement of scientists in the policy sphere, identified more than 150 science-policy linkage mechanisms, and clarified criteria to support their success. The report can be... [Read more]

Hello all,   In this week’s post, once again continuing my series on capture, I respond to Sir Peter Gluckman’s talk (delivered earlier this year, in Ottawa) about science policy in a post-truth environment. One statement he makes, echoing Paul Cairney, is that scientists are good at defining problems. This is a claim that I think needs to be understood properly if we’re going to avoid the major problem he identifies for evidence-informed policy-making: hubris.   Here’s the full text:  ...

Dear SciSIP, The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) in Annapolis, Maryland seeks proposals from highly qualified graduate students interested in conducting team-based socio-environmental synthesis research (i.e. “Graduate Pursuits"). Socio-environmental synthesis focuses on understanding connections between social and biophysical systems and emphasizes the importance of understanding them from a systems perspective. It is a process that brings together multiple, and often disparate, disciplines relevant to the problem at hand to create new... [Read more]
