Are We Telling Decisionmakers the Wrong Things – and with Too Much Confidence?”

This talk includes recent work by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation, University of Washington, and National Center for Atmospheric Research to develop and test methods to characterize more fully the uncertainties in the modeling chain for real-world uses.

“Exploring the Adaptation-Mitigation Relationship: Does Information on the Costs of Adapting to Climate Change Influence Support for Mitigation?”

Can information about adaptation costs influence citizens’ willingness to support climate change mitigation? This presentation will explore why some scholars are concerned that policy discussions on adaptation might present climate change as a more manageable problem, and therefore crowd out mitigation efforts.

Seminars will take place in OCN 203, from Noon to 1pm. Feel free to bring your lunch.
