Science As A Contact Sport

Wed, Nov 3 2010 - 12:00pm Science As A Contact Sport

Ben Santer, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Noah Diffenbaugh, Professor, Environmental Earth System Science, Stanford Uninversity
Greg Dalton, Climate One - Moderator

How are the venomous personal attacks on climate scientists impacting their work? Is the scrutiny causing them to be even more cautious than they are by nature? A chilling effect? What needs to be done to make scientists better public communicators? Is Bjorn Lomborg's partial revision of his skeptical views on global warming an aberration or an indication of a broader shift? Join us for a discussion of politics and science in the age of "global weirding."
