Science Research Public Lecture: The Scientist as Sentinel

Scientists are often reluctant to speak in public on contested issues, for fear that this will "politicize" their science and have a negative impact on their credibility. In this talk, Naomi Oreskes, Professor of History of Science and Affiliated Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences, will examine these concerns, by exploring historical examples of scientists who have spoken up on scientific issues of broad importance, including nuclear weaponry, ozone depletion, and climate change.
