“How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate” with author Andrew Hoffman
Thursday, November 30 | 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM | Visual Arts Center, Beam Classroom
Though the scientific community largely agrees that climate change is underway, debates about this issue remain fiercely polarized. In this lecture, Andrew Hoffman will examine what he discusses in his book: What causes people to reject or accept the scientific consensus on climate change? Hoffman makes a powerful case for a more scientifically literate public, a more socially engaged scientific community, and a more thoughtful mode of public discourse.
Hoffman is Professor of Sustainable Enterprise and Director of the Frederick A. and Barbara M. Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan.
