Climate uncertainties and the problems communicating them. One of the aspects of science communications that can frustrate even its most sophisticated practitioners is the ability of scientists to reach confident conclusions about the big picture even when a field retains significant uncertainties. Of these, climatology remains the field where uncertainties, both real and imagined, are most likely to become front page news. The journal Nature has devoted a series of articles to discussing why that's likely to be the case.
