Dempsey Lecture 2017: “Climate Change: What Now?” With Dr. Naomi Oreskes at Willamette University in #SalemOR – Mar. 10th

Dempsey Lecture 2017

“Climate Change: What Now?”

Dr. Naomi Oreskes, Scholar and Author

Friday, March 10, 7:30 PM
Willamette University | Mary Stuart Rogers Music Center | Hudson Hall

The Harvard professor and environmental scientist will share how industry-funded researchers can delegitimize scientific consensus — as in climate change — to mislead policy makers and the public.

From the long-denied connection between smoking and lung cancer to the latest target – the science behind climate change – learn more about how a few industry-funded researchers delegitimize scientific consensus by using the trappings of science to mislead policy makers and the public.

Naomi Oreskes is Professor of the History of Science and Affiliated Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences. She recently arrived at Harvard after spending 15 years as Professor of History and Science Studies at the University of California, San Diego, and Adjunct Professor of Geosciences at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Professor Oreskes’s research focuses on the earth and environmental sciences, with a particular interest in understanding scientific consensus and dissent.

This event is sponsored by the Dempsey Foundation, the Luce Scholars Program and Willamette University’s Department of Environmental and Earth Sciences.
Free and open to the public.
