Professor Teenie Matlock presents "Why the Details of Messages about Climate and Politics Matter a Lot" at the next session of Science Cafe.

The fine-grained linguistic details of messages about climate and messages about politics affect reasoning and behavior. Matlock will discuss examples of how language influences the inferences we make about politicians and campaign races and how it shapes our perception of risk around climate issues.

This presentation and discussion is open to everyone! Please join us for coffee, tea or other refreshments and a refreshing conversation.
