Scientists spend their entire lives collecting data, doing methodical research, and publishing scientific papers. But is that research really getting out in the world and making a difference? Jonathan Foley, an environmental scientist, discusses his transition from academic research on the environment (at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota) to science communication on sustainability (at the California Academy of Sciences), and the lessons he has learned along the way.
