Effects of climate change

Event Date

Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences

Understanding the structure of arguments about climate change patterns helps us engage those who disagree with us more productively. In this interactive presentation, Lynda Walsh, a rhetoric professor from the University of Nevada, Reno, will introduce some basic but powerful principles of argumentation theory that will prepare participants not only to understand and debate climate change more effectively but also to locate common ground with those who initially appear to be opponents on this issue. No host bar available at 5:30pm, presentation begins at 6:00 p.m. $5 donation collected at the door.
