The University Course on climate change, UNIV 102: Let's Talk About Climate Change, is thrilled to host Dr. Naomi Oreskes at Duke on September 22nd. Dr. Oreskes is an internationally renowned geologist, science historian, and author of numerous scholarly and popular books on the history of earth and environmental science.

Her 2004 essay "The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change" - the first peer-reviewed paper to document the scientific consensus on this crucial issue - has been cited more than 2,500 times and was featured in the Academy-Award winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. Her 2010 book, Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco to Global Warming, co-authored with Erik M. Conway, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, won the Watson-Davis Prize from the History of Science Society, and has been translated into eight languages.

Her public talk in the Griffith Film Theater in the Bryan Center (and via livestream) will be immediately followed by a reception.
