Free Admission

 

How do we deal with disasters and how can we draw on our experience to be more resilient in addressing climate catastrophes? Weaving together geoscience, ecology, psychology, and history, learn more about how we as humans can play to our strengths and avoid our blind spots, and why it’s so challenging to build consensus in the face of climate change.

 

Join veteran science educator L. S. Gardiner as she explains how scientific uncertainty and risk complicate our decision making, and how we can do better, from her book Tales from an Uncertain World: What Other Assorted Disasters Can Teach Us About Climate Change (University of Iowa Press).
