EGU Today 2011

From the Editors

This year, our daily column in EGU Today will focus on the question of the role of science in society. How can scientists help to find solutions that allow us to adapt to a changing environment? How can science contribute to energy conditions or help to avert hazards?

The tragedy in Japan clearly shows the critical role of communicating scientific results to the victims of natural disasters. Communicating science is not a luxury, but a vital instrument for a healthy society. It can literally save lives.
