NASA scientist James Hansen to speak at July 11 conference on 'Rejuvenating Public Sector Science'
Date:6/24/2008

Join us at a daylong event to help forge an agenda for maintaining the independence of regulatory science and protecting scientists from political meddling and corporate influence. Dr. James Hansen, Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, will speak on the "Threat to the Planet: The Dark and Bright Sides of Global Warming." Dr. Hansen is considered the world's leading authority on climate change and the need to take immediate action to curb emissions of greenhouse gases, and was the first to focus global attention on the growing urgency of the climate crisis when he testified before a U.S. Senate Committee in 1988.

Dr. Hansen will be joined by distinuished panels of experts in the environmental, energy, and medical fields who will testify to the importance of government science to protect the independence of regulatory science and ensure its freedom from the influence of powerful special interests.

Register Now! Registration is open to all and is free for members of the press!

The conference is Friday, July 11, 2008 at the Ronald Reagan International Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20004
