Put your head in the sand

Ira Flatow discussing climate change on the Talk of the Nation Science Friday segment Are We Headed Toward Extinction?

I've had scientists who have pulled me over to the side and said in private [that] the situation is much worse than we're willing to talk about in public because we don't want to scare people.

I've heard this same warning for years from others close to environmental scientists. Kinda sad. Well, maybe a little more than that.
