  • Center for Science and Technology Policy Research :: CIRES
    for usable scientific information Our work is often aimed at understanding the choices that people and institutions make in pursuing goals under uncertainty be it an uncertain future climate uncertain outcomes of investments in science and technology or the uncertain outcomes of a particular environmental policy One of our goals is enlarging the range of choice considered by policy makers by analyzing options in areas such as energy technology carbon management science investments and public lands and ecosystems management By linking integrative science with the needs of decision makers science and technology policy research can serve a valuable role in helping the research community better focus its efforts on issues of importance to society and decision makers can more effectively incorporate scientific and technological advances into their decision processes Center Activities Examples of Center Activities please see our annual report for most recent activities Research The Center s NSF funded Science Policy Assessment and Research on Climate project has been examining the challenge of producing science that meets the changing needs of decision makers The Western Water Assessment funded project A Drought Impact and Vulnerability Indicator Suite has canvassed existing indicators and determined the appropriate time scales and geographical frameworks for measuring drought impacts and vulnerability in the Interior West Outreach The Climate Fix What Scientists and Politicians Won t tell You About Global Warming by Roger Pielke Jr seeks to reframe the debate over climate policy in the context of the disappointing results of the 2009 Copenhagen climate conference and the lost trust of the public in the climate science community To be released in 2010 The Center sponsored a year long lecture series Policy Politics and Science in the White House Conversations with Presidential Science Advisors that brought science advisors to Presidents Bush Jr Clinton Reagan Carter Nixon
