Climate Change, Science and Democracy

September 21, 2011

Hour 2: What has the politicization of science done to discussions of important issues like climate change and biotechnology? We’ll spend this hour with Mark Brown [1], Associate Professor of Government at California State University in Sacramento [2] and author of “Science in Democracy: Expertise, Institutions, and Representation” (The MIT Press, 2009). Brown will deliver the lecture “Is Climate Change Good for Democracy?” [3] at the UTD Center for Values in Medicine, Science and Technology [4] this evening.
