If we’re to succeed in shifting the public opinion of climate science--and if we’re to avoid engaging in a precisely analogous public fight over the reliability of the next complex system science breakthrough--then we need to communicate the basics of complexity-based reasoning, and we need to help the public understand that science is a living enterprise. We need to communicate to the average citizen the truth of the maxim from Chapter One: the world is messy and science is hard.
