Keller and Heckman will participate in the Environmental Law Institute's Workshop "Scientific Uncertainty and Professional Ethics in Science, Law, and Journalism" on April 21-22, 2016 at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, DC. The National Science Foundation's Paleoclimate Program is funding the workshop, which will convene 50 participants from the fields of science, law, and journalism. The goal is to promote more constructive debate on environmental and public health issues by examining how these three professions view scientific uncertainty and how professional and ethical norms shape the way they communicate it. The focus of two case studies will be climate change and GMO's. For more information about the Environmental Law Institute, click here.
