Event: Restoring the Sciences: Climate and Weather Extremes

National Association of Scholars

Is the climate apocalypse nigh? The belief that it is has become deeply embedded in the public consciousness, aided by a steady drumbeat of articles in the mainstream media and pronouncements by world leaders. Yet, more than a century of reliable data show that the frequency and severity of heat waves, floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires show no long-term warming trend.

Join the National Association of Scholars on Friday, December 15, at 3 pm ET for what promises to be a wide-ranging and provocative discussion of the place of science in society.

This event will feature Ralph B. Alexander, a physicist and science writer concerned with the abuse of science that swirls around emotive topics like climate change, vaccines, genetically modified organisms and agriculture. His books Science Under Attack: The Age of Unreason and Global Warming: False Alarm, focus on the troubled frontier between science, politics, economics, activism, and religious belief. He is the proprietor of the blog Science Under Attack.
