If you have a desire to learn new things, explore the fundamentals behind it, keen to apply your knowledge and logic in the subject, then you are at the right place. Also, if you are a hard-worker, determined, focused and punctual person, then you are certainly made for science.

Before you choose Science as your stream, analyse yourself. Analyse what you want to become in life or where you want to see yourself in the next 10 years. Would you like to be an engineer building houses or glued to the laptop or would you like to be a teacher, teaching students or an IAS officer managing the administration of the country?

This decision should be purely yours. So, whenever you are choosing the science stream, keep this motive in your mind and choose for your own good.

What the world needs: Science

We have been talking a lot about the appearance of so-called fake news. There are many people who believe in fake news. They are manipulating data … information, misperception … science is far from being established … This is no longer science, we are not having a scientific debate. This is politics. Well obviously there is a lot of fake news, misinformation, they are picking cherries, they are taking things out of context. Well, the public is bombarded with information. What the world needs right now is science. Science sees the world as it is, not as we want it to be. Climate change is happening. We need science now to tell us about the solutions. This is why what we do at the Climate Council is so important. So what we are trying to do is examine the garbage, search for gold to better inform the public, and make good decisions. I’ve been a climate change scientist for 20 years and I was really frustrated just writing documents that were read by other scientists. I spent my life solving how the world works. Life has helped shape the system for 3.5 billion years and we are now a critical part of the thriving changes at the planetary level. When you go to the Great Barrier Reef now and see bleaching, it’s like looking at climate change. And the information alone and it doesn’t get you anywhere. The Climate Council is taking action. The Council registered with the Cities Power Partnership which covers over seven and a half million Australians. We can no longer be left out if you want to solve a problem, you have to take a little leadership. The Climate Council is like the voice of the people on climate change and was created to be financed with public funds and the only reason we are going is because the public supports us.
