IHDP: should 90% of climate change research be social science?

I’m in the hall that once housed the West German Parliament, a glass-covered fish tank of a building on the Rhine, which nowadays has become the Bonn World Conference Centre. For the next four days, the politicians’ microphone-studded desks will be lined by experts in the field of ‘human dimensions of global change’ – given the impressively broad nickname ‘human dimensions’ among this crowd. About 1,200 participants are here to give 800 talks that make up the Open Meeting of the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change (IHDP), a research arm of the UN.
