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? We will present climate science in a different way, to remove confusion, to illuminate the science, to present the psychology of scepticism and denial, and to analyse scientific conduct. What are our options and future directions?
Presentations are followed by refreshments and nibbles.
