In this month's Ogmius we engage recent attention to the "politicization of science," and ask about the motivations for such attention. We have also provided background reading on the politicization of science. We encourage you to share your reactions to our lead editorial, which we will collect and publish in a future issue. We also have from Suraje Dessai (School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, UK and Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, UK) a reply to Clark and Pulwarty’s comment, Devising Resilient Responses to Potential Climate Change Impacts, which appeared in our May 2003 issue. And you will also find a compilation of news and activities related to our work here at the CIRES Policy Center. Be sure to note that we have a new graduate program in Science and Technology Policy here at the University of Colorado and a new research position in weather forecast use and value open here at the Center. Thanks for reading!
