Advocacy by environmental scientists, what that means and its appropriateness, is the subject of considerable controversy, whose essence involves understanding the role of scientists in society.  A comprehensive review of arguments for why some favor and others oppose advocacy by environmental scientists reveals how most of the arguments are characterized by some significant deficiency.  However, there is a newer and powerful argument for advocacy by scientists, key elements of which are: Advocacy is nearly unavoidable; and scientists, by virtue of being citizens first and scientists second, have a responsibility to advocate to the best of their abilities, to improve their advocacy abilities, and to advocate in a justified and transparent manner.
