Climategate tactics detailed in upcoming talk

  • Apr. 4, 2011 8:00 a.m.

U.S. computer scientist and technology expert Dr. John Mashey speaks on climate anti-science Thursday (April 7) at the University of Victoria.

His speech, entitled the Machinery of Climate Anti-Science, will touch on the lobbying tactics of the climate change denial campaign and its success convincing the public of a rift in the scientific community on the issue of global warming.

Mashey’s talk will address the organization and activities of anti-science funders, think tanks and spokespeople over the last 20 years as well as recent developments and initiatives to counter their efforts.

The free lecture is open to the public. It runs from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Flury Hall (Room B150) of the university’s Bob Wright Centre.
