Science: Roger Pielke: Repairing Climate Policy


Why can’t the world successfully address global warming? Science-policy expert Roger Pielke says it’s not the fault of those who reject the Kyoto Protocol, but those who support it and the magical thinking it represents.

Pielke, author of The Climate Fix, says that to repair climate policy, we need to shift the debate from meaningless targets toward a revolution in how the world’s economy is powered, neutralizing the venomous politics surrounding the crisis.

Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.

Tickets are $5 at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800/838-3006, or at the door beginning at 6:30 pm.

Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.

7pm Tuesday, October 19

Science policy expert Roger Pielke, Jr. presents his book The Climate Fix: What Scientists and Politicians Won’t Tell You About Global Warming. Why has the world been unable to address global warming? Pielke says it’s not the fault of those that reject the Kyoto Protocol, but those who support it. Pielke offers a way to address climate policy by shifting the debate away from targets and towards a revolution in how the world’s economy is powered, while de-fanging the venomous politics surrounding the crisis.
