Climate Change, Science & Society: A Multidisciplinary Discussion

Sunday, Jun 26, 2011

Climate change has become one of the most powerful forces in our world, recognized through alterations in physical climates, natural or managed environments and social organizations, and also through deliberations about ethical responsibility and public policy. This event will explore the topic of climate change from diverse disciplinary perspectives, illustrating that it is not simply a scientific problem, but a social and economic one as well and that the development of solutions is likely to require interdisciplinary partnerships. Speakers will participate in a moderated discussion about how their disciplines must come together to address and illuminate the problem of global climate change.

Sponsors: New York Academy of Sciences & Wiley Interdisciplinary Review

Speakers David H. Rind, Ph.D., NASA/GISS; Steven Rose, Ph.D., Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI); Lauren Chambliss, Cornell Agricultural Experiment Station
