This. When I tell people I'm veggie to reduce emissions, about 30% of the time they respond "Oh, I agree. I only eat organic, local meat for the same reason". That response is so completely🤦‍♂️

Emissions going down in Europe is partly a result of exporting the manufacturing of almost everything to Asia, though (where manufactory is also far dirtier than the equivalent in Europe). :(

I think it depends on the context/field. A microbiology technician with *only* an masters is definitely still a scientist. A retired engineer who works on cold fusion in his/her shed is not...

Today I'm exploring Graz, Austria's second city. It's 7 degrees and raining... I miss Provencal weather.

So it seems like the fault is mostly on the presenters. I'm no fan of embargoes tbh, but I also hate seeing whiffs of science released with no paper to back them up. So for results like Proxima c I see them as a necessary evil & I wish everyone respected them (incl presenters!)

b) other journalists having also seen/already reported on the presentation (the first tweet/link I saw was yours and I jumped to that assumption before reading further, which is 100% my mistake).

Thanks for clarifying. I seem to have missed the context of a) being almost the opposite of a small introspective scientific conference (at, eg, NAM or AAS you might see half a dozen "embargoed" results presented, but these ans aimed at fellow researchers), and

All respect Lee, but tweeting about it still kinda seems like a bad move. Science events live streamed on YouTube are watched by, what, dozens of people? I'm not sure that counts as "publically announced". Tweeting to tens of thousands of people does though.

(1/7) So apparently some (I hope very few) people online are using the fact that I am the primary developer of the eht-imaging software library () to launch awful and sexist attacks on my colleague and friend Katie Bouman. Stop.
