Columbia Law School, 435 W. 116 St., New York, NY 10027 Jerome Greene Hall Room 103
Official Event of Climate Week NYC 2018 Attacks on both the message and the messengers of climate science have been disturbingly resilient. Why is that? What are the best ways to reconnect sound science with clear-thinking public action on climate change? What strategies are climate scientists and science communicators developing now? Moderator John Schwartz, New York Times Science Reporter Panelists Robin E. Bell, Professor, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory David Biello, TEDEd, Science Curator Lisa Garcia, Vice President of Litigation for Healthy Communities, Earthjustice Jeff Nesbitt, Climate Nexus, Executive Director Join us for a panel discussion on why and how climate science has become part of the US culture wars and what to do to restore the voice and credibility of science as an irreplaceable guide to both public policy making and private decision making. As a kick-off event of Climate Week NYC 2018, organized by the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, the Sallan Foundation, Earth Institute and Climate Science Legal Defense Fund, expect this panel to do a deep dive into why the US, virtually alone among nations, has experienced a climate denialist riptide, examine its consequences and how to most effectively counteract them. Don’t miss it.
