(p.169) Conclusion
Science in Environmental Policy

Ann Campbell Keller

The MIT Press

This book examines the role of scientists in building environmental policy outcomes. Scientists are making political arguments to present scientific issues so that they will be considered in the framing and development of public policy. Several different explanations, which describe the changes shown during the policymaking for acid rain and climate change issues, are discussed in the book. The influence of scientists on policy framing is hard to predict despite there being strong scientific evidence. Several factors and social forces that help scientists to create strong scientific arguments are reviewed with a focus on the scientists’ policymaking.

Keywords:   environmental policy, scientists, public policy, acid rain, climate change
