On Monday, June 26, 2017 we hosted a free public forum in coordination with our 12th annual Summer Institute for Climate Change Education. Climate Change in the Age of Alternative Facts featured climate scientist and IPCC author Dr. Ben Santer and U of M Institute on the Environment Director Dr. Jessica Hellmann, with Humphrey Senior Fellow and former legislator Steve Kelley moderating. Dr. Santer and Dr. Hellmann addressed a full house at the Humphrey School’s Cowles auditorium, sharing their thoughts on climate change misconceptions and how to combat climate denial.
