The War on Science: What We Need to Do

Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations
November 27, 2018 Belmont Media Center, Belmont MA

Andrew Rosenberg, Ph.D., Director, Center for Science and Democracy, Union of Concerned Scientists

Dr. Rosenberg brings more than 25 years of scientific expertise in government service, academic and non-profit leadership. He is the author of scores of peer-reviewed studies and reports on fisheries and ocean management and has published on the intersection between science and policy making. In this discussion he explains how the present administration impedes environmental and health regulations, rejects facts about climate change, and undermines the work of science-related government agencies. He also explains what the informed public can and must do to diminish resistance to scientific facts and information. The Union of Concerned Scientists is one of the best sources for accurate information on many science-related issues, and the UCS –as Dr. Rosenberg explains here– also provides information on how the public can participate effectively.
