CEEPR is sponsoring a discussion between Professor Steven Koonin, of NYU, who recently published a book entitled Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why It Matters, and Professor Kerry Emanuel of MIT’s Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences who has published a book, Climate Science and Climate Risk: A Primer.
