Are you concerned about climate change, but not totally sure what to conclude? Worried about attacks on scientists? What is a valid scientific idea and how is a scientific consensus formed?
A forum to be held at The University of Western Australia next week will present climate science in a way that removes confusion, illuminates the science, presents the psychology of scepticism and denial, and analyses scientific conduct. What are our options and future directions?
What: Climate Change Forum
Where: UWA Octagon Theatre (parking area 1, Winthrop entrance)
When: 4 to 6.30pm Tuesday, 15 December 2009 (presentation from 4 to 5.30pm, followed by refreshments)
