Event: Climate Misinformation

National Association of Scholars

What does “the science” say about climate change? Are we doomed, or is it no big deal? What’s disinformation, and what’s reliable information?

For many years, Roger Pielke, Jr., Professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado and Distinguished Fellow of Japan’s Institute of Energy Economics, has been helping us sort through these questions. He has written extensively on science policy and governance. He makes a specialty of comparing what the data say about climate with what the public is being told about climate. You can see some of what he has to say at his Substack, The Honest Broker.

Join the National Association of Scholars on Friday, October 14, at 3 pm ET for a fascinating conversation with Dr. Pielke about the politics and science of climate.

The discussion will be moderated by J. Scott Turner, Director of the Intrusion of Diversity in the Sciences Project for the National Association of Scholars. This webinar is the fifth installment in NAS’s ongoing Restoring the Sciences webinar series.
