OSIP is a group of graduate students from all walks of life and with all sorts of experiences and expertise. We’re lucky in that fact – it’s more common to find that a group like our own couldn’t work together, but we’ve found that our different backgrounds have been our strength. We have a variety of outlooks on how to approach science communication, climate change, and policy, which we think fosters creativity and innovative solutions.
Our blog is a reflection of the talents and interests we bring to the table as a group. We each have our own unique voice, yet we are sharing the same message – the hope that scientists and policymakers will spend more time working together to address global issues like climate change. As each blog entry is posted, we’ll include the author of the post so that readers know who is talking to them. We hope that our diverse perspectives on issues surrounding climate science will help more people understand how important it really is that we keep having the hard conversations, until a solution is found.
