Common CAHSS 2021: Disinformation and the Crisis of Human‑Caused Climate Disruption with Dr. David Voelker was recorded live Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
The scientific consensus about human-caused climate change has been well established for decades, yet the world has made little progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. What roles have misinformation and disinformation played in obstructing meaningful action?
The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences for the third annual Common CAHSS Conference 2021 event themed “Truth, Information, Misinformation, and Democracy,” sought to explore the role of the modern university in supporting the “continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found,” which has been part of the University of Wisconsin identity for over a century.
This Common CAHSS 2021: Truth talk was recorded in Fort Howard Hall in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.
