Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
What climate change and world change really mean for all of us
Date: Tuesday, October 20th
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Bernard Z. Friedlander, Department of Psychology, Emeritus, University of Hartford
Abstract: Can American and World politicians face the possibilities that some of our smartest scientists may be right about Climate Change? That’s what this presentation seeks to understand and explain: the standoff between– Authoritative assessments from massive bodies of data that forecast high probabilities of many widespread catastrophes; and Persistent struggles among some of our most powerful political and economic leaders to preserve business as usual. CCSS concepts of simplicity, intricacy, complexity and chaos appear to account for problems that must be overcome if America and the World can solve these problems before it’s too late.
