Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society: Climate Science and Democracy

Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society: Climate Science and Democracy

Recent developments suggest a widening gap between the scientific consensus on anthropogenic climate change and the willingness of political leaders in the United States to act on this information. This conference brings together scholars from across the academic spectrum to address this gap and suggest how it might be closed. Together we will examine both the philosophy and the politics of climate change, exploring how climate information can be better produced, and how it can be better used and communicated to policymakers and the public, in order to bring about effective action within our democracy. The event is co-sponsored by the Logic and Politics of Climate Change project at the Neubauer Collegium and "Studies in Climate Change: The Limits of the Numerical," a Mellon Foundation Project at the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
