The most important scientists you can ask for an AMA
The most valuable scientists you will ever meet at an AMA.
You can ask them for advice on how to be a scientist.
You will probably be surprised.
You might be surprised by the answers.
I don’t know about you, but I am more than happy to listen to an expert on my topic.
My goal is to understand their insights and offer my own personal perspective.
In the end, that is the most valuable thing I can do.
But if I’m going to ask for their advice, I’m not going to say I am an expert.
I am also not going be a follower of the herd.
I will try to be informed and ask them the questions they want to hear.
I would suggest a simple question.
Is there a way to explain to an audience why you have this idea?
I’m willing to give them an explanation if they want it, but it has to be reasonable.
So ask questions that don’t make you look like an idiot.
If it is reasonable, you will probably get a good answer.
If you don’t have an answer, you can still ask questions.
For instance, I want to know what the current research is showing about climate change and how to make our world a better place.
What are the ways to improve it?
If you can give a short answer that will help you understand the science better, you’ll get a lot of people who will listen to you.
If you want to find out what people have been saying about your topic, use the search function on my site.
If there is a science-based blog you frequent, or a podcast, you listen to, or even if you follow a social media channel, you may be interested in learning more about it.
I hope this guide has helped you find the right experts for your needs.
