Climate Science as Culture Change

. December 19, 2012.

 

Although scientists around the world agree concerning the dangers of climate change, the debate remains amongst the general public. Society has yet to fully embrace the recommended preventative steps despite the increasing amount of data and tangible examples, like the recent hurricane, Sandy. On Tuesday, January 15 Andrew J. Hoffman, Director of the UM Erb Institute, will discuss “Climate Science as Culture Change.” Hoffman explores why the science world should explain the hard numbers demonstrating the severe effects of climate change and integrate different social values to avoid feeding skepticism and resistance.
