Is it important to communicate science effectively?

Why is it only recently that science communication is recognized as so important? What has changed? Are forum’s like this important?

Why do many engineers find it offensive to be called a ‘scientist’?

When the term ‘science’ is used in it’s broadest and diverse sense to decribe all technology related subjects including maths, physics, biology, chemistry, psychology, computer science, and engineering, I have personally found many engineers found this very rude. I can understand engineering is not exactly a science – but it is classed as a science and technology subject would you not agree? Why do engineers find it so rude. What is the reason I am curious?
