Climate Change, GMOs and Vaccines: Should We Trust Scientists? Wonderlust talk at Belgrade Library
- Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm
- Belgrade Community Library, 106 N. Broadway
MSU Wonderlust offers a public presentation at the Belgrade Community Library called "Climate Change, GMOs and Pediatric Vaccines: Should We Trust Scientists?”
Kristen Intemann, a professor of ethics at Montana State University, will discuss examples in which policymakers and the public are reluctant to accept claims that are widely accepted in the scientific community. Her talk will cover lack of public support for climate change policies, refusals to vaccinate children, and concerns about the safety of GMO foods. The evening ends with an interactive discussion of what both scientists and lay persons can do to bridge this gap.
The talk is from 6pm to 7:30pm and is free, but pre-registration is requested.
This presentation is offered to the public by MSU Wonderlust, which offers lifelong learning opportunities for adults of all ages. Wonderlust is a program of MSU Academic Technology and Outreach. Presentations in Belgrade are co-hosted by the Belgrade Community Library and First Interstate Bank.
