Events like the March for Science on April 22th, Earth Day, allow us to reflect about the importance of science to our society. Science is the essential tool for understanding our physical world and the basis for unbiased inquiry. It allows us to ask questions, and provides us with data-driven answers to inform and improve our lives. As our Chief Scientist, Dr. Melissa Lunden, puts it: science explains how you can make anything better.
At Aclima, we use science to design and deploy sensor networks that extend the senses and bridge the gap between ourselves and the natural world. Science allows us to take the pulse of the planet and translate air pollution and climate change emissions into scientific insights that we can use to create more resilient communities.
Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Former Administrator of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Aclima advisor, Luc Vincent, VP of Engineering at Lyft and Aclima advisor, and Melissa Lunden, Aclima Chief Scientist talk about why science is important to them and to mankind.
