The end of the nineteenth century marked a golden age of Dutch science, which resulted in Nobel Prizes for Van ’t Hoff, Lorentz, Zeeman, Van der Waals and Kamerlingh Onnes. Equally famous at this time was the Dutch Orientalist Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, the father of the modern study of islam. When the Nobel Prize winners of the early twentieth century are still kept in high esteem, Snouck Hurgronje has become a controversial figure as his research was linked with colonial warfare and the Dutch policy towards islam in the Dutch East Indies.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the UN scientific panel on climate change. It produces assessment reports based on the latest science to inform policymakers. One of its recent reports, the Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5C (SR1.5) released in 2018, discussed whether it is still possible to limit warming to 1.5C, what would be needed, and how the impacts 2C of global warming compare to those of 1.5C. It was prepared for a dialogue between the countries in the Paris Agreement that took place late 2018.
