For science-minded folks, trying to understand some politicians’ perspectives on climate change is like trying to translate ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs without the Rosetta Stone.
Good luck with the hieroglyphs sans stone.
However, if you’d like some help deciphering the political side of climate change, you’re in luck. Washington State University at Vancouver will host a Jan. 27 discussion called “Climate Change: The Clash of Science and Politics.”
Presented by the American Democracy Project, the event will feature two WSU-Vancouver faculty members breaking things down: Mark Stephan, an associate professor of political science, social science and public affairs, will cover politicians’ take on climate change, while Michael Berger, a senior instructor in biology, will delve into scientists’ perspective on the subject.
The event will run from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 110 of WSU-Vancouver’s Dengerink Administration Building and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served in Room 130 of the same building.
