More "class discussion" 

The comments on yesterday's "Science of Science Communication course, Session 4" post are much more interesting than anything I have to say.  I've responded to a couple that raised questions about what I had in mind by the Goldilocks explanation for climate change risk perceptions. I've tried to clarify in an addendum to the post.  Additional comments (in the "comments" field for yesterday's entry) on that or any other point relating to the post or the other comments are eagerly solicited!
