Framing Me

The vigorous discussion over the Nisbet-Mooney Science piece on science communication (too many to link, see Matt’s blog for a rundown) is a perfect setup for a talk I’m giving Friday at UNM: “Communicating Science: What the News Media Can Do, and What it Can’t”, or words to that effect. For the cognitive misers in the audience, I’ll be explaining that Matt and Chris are right, and that folks don’t really need to pay attention to the details, they should just take my word for it. 🙂
2 p.m., Northrop Hall, room 122 (the big lecture hall on the northeast corner of the building). Free!

    Or is it the other way around?
