Impeachment would be a months-long live TV program devoted to explaining and demonstrating all the ways in which Trump is known to be a crook, while finding new ones. The idea that he would come out of that in a stronger position than he is now is borderline incomprehensible.

If you show the public all the crimes Trump committed (which they're already inclined to believe) and then the Senate protects him, you have a pretty darn good argument for why the ballot box is the only way to remove him - along with the senators who are protecting him.

The goal of impeachment is not removal. This is a straw man. The goal of impeachment is impeachment: to apply Congress' strongest-possible tool for holding a POTUS accountable for crimes. The process educates the public and shines an extremely bright spotlight on his crimes. 1/

agreed! that's why I so strongly advocate visualization education for scientists as part of the MSc and PhD curriculum. there will still be room for communication expertise for certain applications / audiences.

Co-production is key. The figures in the summary of the latest report was a collaboration between comms experts, designers and climate researchers. Figures had to be unanimously approved, while balanced clarity and accuracy.

I know tons of great scientists who certainly aren't experts in visualization. I'm not claiming my sample is representative, but I find the anecdotal evidence compelling

I think that this take focuses much on the biggest successes. 99.9% of science communication, which doesn't have that much visibility, does benefit from communication expertise. I've done plenty of work improving the design of science posters made by scientists, for instance

A parliament does not always have to be half a donut 🍩 In our new project we show all seats of the EU Parliament per parliamentary group and the shares of German MEPs in all elections since 1979 in a mobile friendly format.
