Jan. 20 U-M town hall: Cures for climate confusion
DATE: 6:30-8:00 p.m., Friday, Jan. 20, 2012.
EVENT: When the scientific experts have concluded that we are changing our climate, why do many U.S. citizens remain confused or skeptical? And what can experts and social scientists teach us about how to help bridge the gap between science and public understanding? These questions will be discussed with leaders from politics, business, religion and science, and explore what we can do to find common ground.
No registration required. The town hall will be live-streamed at:
PLACE: Blau Auditorium, U-M Ross School of Business, 701 Tappan Street, Ann Arbor, Mich., 48109.
HOSTS: U-M Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
CO-SPONSORS: Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences; Michigan Memorial Phoenix Energy Institute; Graham Environmental Sustainability Institute; Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Center; School of Natural Resources and Environment.
