A podcast by the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability with Leiden University's Rector Magnificus Carel Stolker, and, Member of the European Parliament Bas Eickhout about the role of scientists in the climate debate.
Scientists have been publishing articles about climate change for decades. However, the translation of this knowledge into political policy and administration is lagging behind. Climate activists are calling on politicians to listen to the scientists and act on their insights. What does science itself do to make the urgency clear? How do we connect research methods and scientific findings and make them consistent with political decision-making? The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability interviewed Rector Magnificus Carel Stolker of Leiden University and MEP Bas Eickhout of Groen Links.
