Brown-Bag Discussion

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 

LPSC 402 

 Should scientists withhold some evidence to avoid alarming the public? Who decides?

We will have conversations related to the connection between science as a journal article and as a media story.

Please bring an example to share (if you have one) of a science story in the media that either avoided the pitfalls of over-dramatization or fell headlong into the snake pit.

Share the brown-bag with colleagues who you feel could add to the discussion or need assistance.
