"If humanity is to successfully
confront the multiple, daunting environmental threats it has
visited upon itself, it must figure out how to turn science
into something that decision makers can actually use. This
illuminating and important study points the way: it reveals
the complex social and political factors that make the
difference between scientific assessments that have little
impact, and those that help turn knowledge into action"
