Union College’s 2019 Environmental Science Policy and Engineering Winter Seminar Series
February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Raymond Bradley – Distinguished Professor and Climate Change Researcher – University of Massachusetts
Title of seminar: The science and politics of global warming
Ray Bradley is a University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Geosciences, and Director of the Climate System Research Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Bradley’s research focuses on climate variability, and understanding the causes of climatic change. He was a co-author on the paper that presented the “hockey-stick model”, which became a focal point of attacks from climate change “skeptics”, eventually leading to an investigation by a congressional committee. Bradley’s personal experience of being a target during this politically instigated controversy is recounted in one of his many books “Global Warming and Political Intimidation”
