Science and politics: basic literacy for activists
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
In this talk, Professor Keesing will provide an overview of tools and concepts that can empower you to find, interpret, challenge, and defend scientific information. She will provide you with an overview of how science is funded, how politicians can question whether human activities are causing global climate change, and whether the current administration is operating outside the bounds of the normal relationship between science and politics.
David & Rosalie Rose Distinguished Professor of the Sciences, Mathematics, and Computing, Bard College
