Using stories to communicate science

In our grad seminar class (Graduate Seminar: Environmental Science), we’ve had the honour of hosting a few guests this year. Perhaps the guest with the highest profile was John Brumby, the former premier of Victoria. Among a range of other issues, he noted that scientists need to use narrative to communicate effectively with politicians.
