DC Event: Roger Pielke Jr. Discusses "The Climate Fix" with Time magazine's Bryan Walsh
Matthew C. Nisbet, Ph.D. is Associate Professor of Communication Studies, Public Policy, and Urban Affairs at Northeastern University. Nisbet studies the role of communication and advocacy in policymaking and public affairs, focusing on debates over over climate change, energy, and sustainability. Among awards and recognition, Nisbet has been a Visiting Shorenstein Fellow on Press, Politics, and Public Policy at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, a Health Policy Investigator at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and a Google Science Communication Fellow. In 2011, the editors at the journal Nature recommended Nisbet's research as “essential reading for anyone with a passing interest in the climate change debate,” and the New Republic highlighted his work as a “fascinating dissection of the shortcomings of climate activism."
Readers in the Washington, DC, area are likely to find the upcoming event on Monday, October 11, of strong interest. Roger Pielke Jr. is one of the top analysts of the climate change debate and his new book promises to be provocative and essential reading.
