Scholarly Selections Talk: PUBLIC PERCEPTIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: WHAT EXPLAINS THE ACCEPTANCE (VS. THE REJECTION) OF SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS ON CLIMATE CHANGE? with Dr. Rose Njoroge
Join University of Washington Lecturer Rose Njoroge in a conversation about public perceptions of climate change. In spite of the scientific consensus on climate change, survey findings show that the American public is polarized in its views. A study conducted among 650 Florida citizens in 2012 suggest that different factors (rather than political ideology) may explain this polarization. Learn more about how people arrive at their conclusions on this topic. This talk is FREE and open to the public.
A joint program of UW Tacoma’s School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences and the Washington State History Museum, the SCHOLARLY SELECTIONS series brings UWT scholars’ work to the public in an informal setting. Talks are held on the Third Thursday of the month when admission to the museum is free.
