Can Our Species Ever Solve Long-Term Global Environmental Problems?
Dr. Stephen Schneider believes that in addition to the usual array of baffling scientific uncertainties, cultural, psychological and educational obstacles make these already difficult problems virtually unsolvable so long as we continue to deny their existence. In this lecture, Dr. Schneider, a professor from Stanford University and a public spokesman for global change issues, provides an overview of the science behind global change and discusses public resistance to its evidence. Dr. Schneider argues that in order to have a functioning democracy, citizens must start understanding and grappling with these pressing issues in global change.
