Curbing Climate Change


Dr. Brian Beckage, a professor of plant biology and computer science at the University of Vermont, explains the significance of a study he co-authored that says understanding the human perception of risk from climate change and the associated behavioral responses is key to curbing future climate change. The paper was a result of combined efforts of the joint Working Group on Human Risk Perception and Climate Change at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) at the University of Maryland.
