"Global Warming and Political Intimidation" by Distinguished Prof. Raymond Bradley

May 5, 2014 - 2:00 pm to 3:15 pm (already occurred)

Global warming is the number one environmental issue of our time, yet some prominent politicians have refused to accept scientific evidence of human responsibility and have opposed any legislation or international agreement that would limit greenhouse emissions. A few have gone even further and have tried to destroy the reputations of scientists researching climate change by deliberately undermining the credibility of their research. In this lecture Prof. Raymond Bradley, Distinguished Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, will speak about the inside story from the front lines of the debate, published in his recent book “Global Warming and Political Intimidation”, describing the tactics that those in power have used to intimidate him and his colleagues as part of a larger pattern of governmental suppression of scientific information; politics at the expense of empirically based discourse.
