Description

2016-2017 Penn Humanities Forum on Translation

University of Pennsylvania



Conference Keynote Address for An Ecotopian Toolkit for the Anthropocene

This lecture draws attention to the ways that scientific research does or does not translate into ethical or political imperatives, drawing from Dr. Hansen’s controversial decision to leave his post as the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute to devote his time to political activism. He talks about the process of science and independent peer review in the context of rapid global climate change.
