October 16, 2019

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The existence of climate deniers on the right and vaccine deniers on the left portend a world where dismissing science can have grave consequences. In an attempt to convince decision makers and the public that there is a need to take action, scientists often fail to get their message across. Amy and Roger Aines reveal why, and what can be done to change that outcome. In this talk and discussion with Andy Revkin, they share insights and strategies from their research for writing Championing Science – Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers. They make the case that all of us need to have more conversations about science which can only happen if more scientists speak up and make their ideas and their work better understood. Introduction: Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center for Global Energy Policy, Columbia University Discussants: Amy L. Aines, Founder and CEO Damianakes Communications, Co-Author of Championing Science — Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers Roger D. Aines, Chief Scientist of the Energy Program at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Co-Author of Championing Science — Communicating Your Ideas to Decision Makers Andy Revkin, Founding Director, Initiative on Communication & Sustainability The Earth Institute, Columbia University To read more about the authors and book, please click “More Information” above.
