UCI Law’s Environmental Law Society is holding a book discussion on Merchants of Doubt by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway on October 27th. The discussion will be moderated by Professor Michael Robinson-Dorn. We would like to focus the discussion on science-denial and the role it has played in our current election cycle. Possible subtopics include climate denial, the relationships of our major parties with science, and ways in which we, as lawyers and academics, can help increase transparency with regards to the relationship between science and our political system.
Anyone interested in learning and talking about the relationship between the law, our environment, and our current state of political affairs is welcome to attend.
