At the start of this month, the US president announced the country would be withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, a decision that rejects the overwhelming political and scientific consensus. The EGU reacted by strongly opposing this decision and reaffirming its support for the EGU scientific community and its science. EGU President Jonathan Bamber also wrote in defence of science in an opinion piece, a follow-up to the ‘Make Facts Great Again: how can scientists stand up for science?’ Union Symposium at the EGU 2017 General Assembly. An editorial about the session was also published in Nature Geoscience, highlighting the need not only for the public to trust in scientists, but also for scientists to trust the people.

In other news, the EGU has opened a call for financial support for training schools. If you’d like to organise a training school in the Earth, planetary or space sciences in 2018, please apply for funding from the EGU by 15 August 2017.
