About this Item


  • Climate Change Policy: Updates


  • Ecologist Peter Frumhoff discussed whether scientific findings can or should inform the public discourse on climate-change policy. Frumhoff examined results from his own ecological studies over the past several years and how this information can build an informed, pragmatic, science-based discussion. He also considered how lessons from history and the social sciences can build a more broadly shared understanding of climate risks and choices.
