Comments on: Year of Science Question of the Month: If you could be any type of scientist, what kind would you be and why? http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/01/yosqotm-scientist/ The EPA Blog Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:58:31 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Jackenson Durand http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/01/yosqotm-scientist/#comment-11627 Tue, 12 May 2009 16:55:30 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=583#comment-11627 I was always trying to get a better understanding on nature existence and enviroment daily life which is, a scienctist mind exactly. Science is a group with many elements as we know. I should bless to touch all those elements or general study but i will be very happy to hold a Geology degree at this time.

He also has an MPH degree. I believe that there is a real need for knowledgable persons to study scientific articles, read information provided by industry(frequently biased because they are trying to market a product), examine information provided by the grassroots and then “connect the dots” so to speak so that there is correlation between the 3 sources and unbiased decisions can be published.

Why? Because we need to improve our buildings and make them more energy efficient . Buildings account for more than 40% of total energy consumption in the US. We need more people to help reduce the negative impact that buildings have on our environment!

Perseverance, dedication and a love of science can be magical in their own way!

That being said, if I were to drink magic math juice that would allow me to do statistical analysis, etc., I would probably be either a toxicologist or work in the area of exposure assessment — or both. I find risk assessment to be fairly fascinating.

Of course I would have said marine biologist, but I married one and I know how little they make. :)

I decided to become an environmental biologist since it offers real chances to effect positive change in the world around us, requires study of a wide variety of sciences instead of specialization in only one (I like to study a little bit of everything too), and offers the possibility of employment at the 4-year degree level instead of after obtaining a Masters or Doctorate.

Hmm, I don’t know if I’m scientist material. I love science and science stories, I watch NOVA, I buy science magazines for airplane reading, I adore Brian Greene. I even saw Jane Goodall speak once.

Science was my favorite subject in grade school. I studied marine biology and loved it, but I think more because I’m curious rather than investigative. I don’t have good enough head for research or analysis. But I still love science stories and information.
