Academics Combine Science And Humanities To Combat Climate Change

Discussions related to climate change typically focus on science and data, how temperatures have risen or greenhouse gas emissions or melting icecaps, but more literary stories have been written that fit comfortably in that genre, whether they’re dystopian or slightly more uplifting.

A pair of academics at the University of California-Irvine decided to merge the science and humanities disciplines in an effort to raise awareness of, and to fight, climate change. They are Steven Allison, professor of ecology, and Tyrus Miller, dean of the School of Humanities.

They joined The Show to discuss their efforts.
