“No, Uncle Ted, You Are Wrong!” – Why Misinformation Exists & How to Properly Debunk Myths
Mark Twain once said, “The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, it’s that they know so many things that just aren’t so.” Join Prof. Scott Mandia for an explanation of why a sizeable portion of Americans do not accept that humans are causing global warming. Attendees will also learn the best strategies for debunking many commonly-held myths.
Lectures will run from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Room 126 of the Smithtown Science Building (T126) of the Ammerman Campus of Suffolk Community College.
