Please join activist Kert Davies, journalist Carey Gillam, and scientist Tyrone Hayes in a lively discussion with one another and NYU Environmental Studies faculty member Jennifer Jacquet about the denial of scientific knowledge.
Expect to learn about Davies’ uncovering of Exxon’s Secrets, Gillam’s book Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science, and Hayes’ path from Silent Spring to Silent Night and his experience researching the effects of the herbicide atrazine.
Spanning across disciplines and industry sectors, this event will reveal how science denial has affected each of these panelists and each of us in terms of public health and environmental protection.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Environmental Studies and Center for the Humanities. This event is free and open to the public. Seating is first come first served.
