Climate Cluster II Panel Discussion: Climate Change Scientists in the Trenches

Climate change science is attracting an exceptional amount of public interest, yet debates over the merit and implications of climate change research seldom unpack the complex set of practices and networks that make up this field. This panel will explore the multiple realities of conducting climate change science at a time of heightened skepticism and media attention. Panelists: Jason Box (Associate Professor of Geography Atmospheric Sciences, Ohio State University), Jeffrey Bury (Assoc. Prof, Environmental Studies, UCSC), Ken Mankoff (Ph.D. Student, Earth & Planetary Sciences, UCSC), Lisa Sloan (Professor of Earth & Planetary Sciences, Director of the Climate Change and Impacts Laboratory, UCSC) Continue Reading Climate Cluster II Panel Discussion: Climate Change Scientists in the Trenches
