Holi Festival (Festival of Colors), is a spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, where all distinctions of social class are put aside. People celebrate in the streets by throwing rich handfuls of colored powders on eachother. Each person that bumps another then carries their colors.

On the one hand we spoke of science and what it looks like on the ground to those who practice it. On the other hand we waded knee-deep into the wreckage that is science in the sphere of politics.
From my seatmate’s perspective the field of climate studies must be awash in controversy. Was the planet warming, or not?
