Coffman Memorial Union Theater

Controversial environmental policy decisions require a complex mix of technical and value judgments. Both science and democracy have legitimate roles to play in making these decisions, but the two are frequently perceived to be at odds. This talk explored the sources of tension between science and politics, and examined strategies for combining sound science with sound politics.
