    The last few years have been too centered on the issues of fake news and debunking, particularly in some field of science, to actually reflect other very urgent questions that, in the long run, are likely to be even more impactful and significant. For instance, there is a huge issue around 'trust' between science and journalism communities that goes far back in time. While science and journalism have different roles to play, they have many things in common; both science and journalism are all about facts and evidences.

    May 11, 2017 — In this week’s podcast we share an in-depth interview with Gina McCarthy, former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and currently a Menschel Senior Leadership Fellow at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. During her nearly four years at the helm of the EPA McCarthy helped spearhead the Obama Administration’s efforts to address climate change and increase use of renewable sources of energy. McCarthy has become a vocal advocate for the need to address climate change—and has called on scientists to be more outspoken on the issue. We spoke with McCarthy about the EPA’s critical role in protecting the public’s health, the challenges the agency faces in protecting our water and air—especially in the wake of Flint’s water crisis, and why we should vie...

The last few years have been too centered on the issues of fake news and debunking, particularly in some field of science, to actually reflect other very urgent questions that, in the long run, are likely to be even more impactful and significant. For instance, there is a huge issue around 'trust' between science and journalism communities that goes far back in time. While science and journalism have different roles to play, they have many things in common; both science and journalism are all about facts and evidences. They both need to be independent and seek new information that need to be told to inform the public. And both have experienced a dramatic transition from a one man job to a much more collaborative dimension of their work. For both of them, technological innovation has led to a huge amount of available information, data, new tools to deal with. Science has reached an amazing ability to build super sophisticated models, to improve precision in calculation, to describe complex phenomena. Journalism has seen the advent of tools and formats that allow the design of very innovative and sometimes even immersive ways to tell stories. Especially in complex topics like climate change, especially in the age of information abundance and mixed voices, both journalists and scientists tend to struggle with communicating the facts in the way public understands it. A challenge where they could win if they learn how to be helpful to each other. Innovative science-journalism collaboration could lead to a better understanding of complex phenomena, such as climate change and its impacts, by a wider part of society which could, in turn, prove more supportive and collaborative with science itself. Finding new narratives might help taking the distance from the disaster-focused stories and go further into potential solutions, ability of local communities to deal with the changes, opportunities that can come out of it. So, what can we learn from the practices such as Lookout360, an accelerator programme promoted by European Forest Institute (EFI) and GEN, that combines both science and 360 storytelling? How can we benefit from digital technology that supports new way to engage with the public? Can we facilitate collaboration and connection among these two communities, in a similar fashion to what happened with the hacks&hackers ones, through topics like climate change and digital innovation and by supporting them in mutual training, sharing experiences and the shaping of a common language? Organised in association with European Forest Institute.

Building the Future of Earth and Environmental Sciences at MIT At MIT's Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS), in the School of Science, we are driven to answer profound questions about the natural world and our place in the universe, as well as to address some of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. What causes climate change and how can we predict and mitigate its impacts? How do we quantify natural hazard and risk-can we predict earthquakes? How did life evolve on Earth and can we detect life on distant planets? How fast is the environment changing-are we facing another mass extinction? We draw on fundamental research to guide policy and train the next wave of thought leaders who will help safeguard our future. EAPS shares the goal of attaining a more sustainable world with the MIT-WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography and MIT's Environmental Solutions Initiative (ESI)-which brings together faculty and students from across the Institute to learn and to develop innovative solutions to today's pressing environmental problems. To achieve our joint mission, we need modern, shared facilities and dynamic spaces to attract and unite the world's best scholars and students. New Space for Earth and the Environment As MIT works toward a better world, the renovation and expansion of the iconic Cecil and Ida Green Building (Building 54) represents a unique opportunity to establish a central beacon for climate research and environmental innovation on campus. Home to EAPS for more than 50 years, the towering Green Building will be transformed to create a new hub for MIT's Earth and environment programs, bringing together EAPS, ESI, and the MIT-WHOI Joint Program to inspire powerful action. The creation of the Earth and Environment Pavilion, along with new EAPS climate science labs in Building 4, will: - advance MIT's mission to understand complex Earth and environmental systems and inform policy about climate change, pollution, and energy resources; - accelerate campus-wide efforts to address today's environmental challenges and the risks they pose to sustainable human life on Earth; - enhance campus and student life with LEED-certified labs, classrooms, and meeting spaces to support the nexus of environmental innovation and learning; and - keep MIT at the vanguard of Earth systems and climate science research. MIT's Commitment to the Planet MIT is mobilizing its efforts to understand and address challenges around issues of climate, environment, and sustainability. The decision to establish a major hub for Earth and environmental sciences and world-class laboratory space to support cutting-edge climate research in EAPS reflects MIT's commitment to improve the health of the planet and create a better world for its inhabitants. "The new facilities for EAPS will accelerate our search for knowledge about climate and the natural world," says Robert van der Hilst, the Schlumberger Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences and head of EAPS. "And our partnership with WHOI and the Environmental Solutions Initiative will create exciting new synergies, catalyzing efforts to both advance scientific knowledge and to bring MIT's extraordinary talent together to address today's urgent environmental challenges." An Investment in the Future We call on MIT's friends and supporters to join us in advancing the Institute's global leadership in research into the Earth, planets, climate and life. Together, we can ensure that MIT continues to play a critical role in exploring the Earth, its evolving climate and life, and the planets in and beyond our solar system. With your help, MIT can accelerate its search for collaborative solutions to some of the planet's most urgent environmental problems and help ensure a sustainable future for human life on Earth.

Scott Peters (D) for a discussion on how all levels of governments can better support the technology sector and what San Diego could do to become a global destination for increased innovation, capital, and talent.
