After Sandy: The Debate We Should Have Had
Can science shape US policy? A climate expert and a nine-term Republican congressman talk it out in the latest Climate Desk Live event.
This morning, Climate Desk Live is partnering with ScienceDebate.org to bring you the second event in our series: a conversation between Kevin Knobloch—the president of the Union of Concerned Scientists and an expert on climate—and Mike Castle, the former governor of Delaware and a nine-term Republican congressman from the state. Our moderator is award-winning journalist and author Chris Mooney. The question at hand: In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, to what extent can science—and climate science in particular—shape US policy?
Watch it here live at 9:30 a.m. EDT, and check back soon for highlights at climatedesk.org.
