Professor Mark Hixon (firstname.lastname@example.org), Hsiao Endowed Chair in Marine Biology, presents a film series exploring climate change in cinema during 2019 Spring semester at UH Mānoa
Climate disruption is widely recognized by the scientific community as the greatest threat to the biosphere and humankind during this century and beyond.
At the same time, human-caused global warming and climate change has mistakenly become a political issue in the United States, resulting in unnecessary confusion and controversy that diverts attention from pressing problems.
Films on the topic range from highly informative (pure science) to highly biased (pure propaganda), and they provide excellent lessons in scientific communication in the context of political advocacy.
Participants will view, discuss, and evaluate a broad range of documentary films about climate change.
