Time: 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
The social debate around climate change is no longer about carbon dioxide and climate models--it's about values, culture, worldviews and ideology. Hear Andrew J. Hoffman, Director, UM Erb Institute, discuss how the use of increasing amounts of data without attending to social values of the people or groups being addressed will increase resistance to the message and make a social consensus even more elusive. Presented by Sierra Club Huron Valley Group.
