Your Call: Standing up for science

Dec 15, 2016

    

How are scientists standing up to Trump’s anti-science policies? Science historian Naomi Oreskes joins us to discuss climate change and scientific research under Donald Trump.

At Tuesday’s Stand Up for Science rally in San Francisco, she said, “This is a frightening moment. We have seen how the reins of the federal government are being handed over to the fossil fuel industry. We have to do something.” How are scientists fighting back? Join us live at 10am on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Naomi Oreskes, professor of the History of Science and Affiliated Professor of Earth, and the co- author of Merchants of Doubt, How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco to Global Warming
