If you’re in the New York City area in two weeks, you won’t want to miss an important lecture by astrophysicist David Helfand. A professor at Columbia University and brilliant writer, Helfand will discuss “Climate Change: What We Know and What We Don’t Know” as part of the One Day University live talks. The event will take place March 21, 2016, from 7 to 9 p.m. and will be hosted by Claudia Dreifus of The New York Times. The venue is the New York Institute of Technology at 1871 Broadway.

Helfand is a distinguished professor, speaker, and author who has vigorously and cleanly defended science against pseudoscience. His book, A Survival Guide to the Misinformation Age, is just out. It is an important book to read for anyone interested in scientific thinking.
