Science Writing Commentaries are the second of two-part Method & Commentary posts. I choose an excellent example of published science writing in which I identify and explain one of the techniques that makes the piece successful. The first post examines the Method, wherein I select and analyze the techniques I will focus on in the Commentary. In the Commentary, I will show how to recognize these techniques, and assess how they are used.
This edition of Method & Commentary focuses on Robinson Meyer’s “Why America Doesn’t Really Make Solar Panels Anymore” published June 16, 2021 in The Atlantic. Read about the Techniques of Plot in the Method post from last week.
This week’s commentary can be found on LinkedIn.
