NAS says: Listen to the science of science communication

National Academy of Science President Ralph Cicerone (foreground) & Nobelist Daniel Kahneman during the Q&A that followed Kahneman's (outstanding) lecture.

The NAS's Science of Science Communication Sackler Colloquium is modeling what the practice of science & science-informed policymaking needs to do: start listening to the science of science communication, the foundational insights of which reflect the work of Kahneman (and Amos Tversky, Paul Slovic & Baruch Fischhoff, among others) on risk perception.

I feel very optimistic today!
