Thin Science?, Propaganda?, Hidden Agendas?....unfortunately that's what most of us expect to find behind the headlines when the stakes are high. In this brilliantly tight presentation from TED, Cambridge Phd. candidate, Rachel Pike introduces us to her work on the molecule Isoprene and then helps us understand the enormous effort behind the scientific work about our atmosphere. Consider....620 scientists in 40 countries reviewed by 400 scientists in 113 countries. Does that change your opinion of our headlines?
