 New Videos about Scientific Communication in the Public Sphere

The PULSE Fellows would like to call the Community's attention to a series of new videos on YouTube about scientific communication and how scientists can help guide the public in scientifically-informed decision making.  The documentary is called UpStream and all four chapters can be accessed through this link: Upstream Video.  Each chapter is 7-8 minutes long and they overall address how scientists can effectively engage (or in many cases, don't) with the public regarding controversial issues.
