The similarities between getting awareness for data quality issues and the climate issue was touched 10 years ago here on this blog in the post Data Quality and Climate Politics.
The challenges are still the same.
There are many examples published where the results of climate change are pictured. A recent one is the image from Greenland showing huskies pulling sleds not over the usual ice, but through water.
We also see statistics showing a development towards melting ice masses with rising sea levels as the foreseeable result. However, statistics can always be questioned. Is the ice thickening somewhere else? Has this happened many times before?
These kind of questions shows the layers we must go through getting from data quality to information quality, then decision quality and on top the wisdom in applying the right knowledge whether that is to achieve business outcomes or avoiding climate change.
