This online, multidisciplinary panel will focus on the politics of science, consensus, and evidence-building relating to environmental and climate debates. Panelists will discuss how public trust relating to climate change and pollution has been constituted, eroded, and subverted by corporations and environmental agencies in the U.S., and what kinds of changes to our policies, politics, and communication may help to rebuild trust in our governmental agencies and institutions of science and medicine.
