This public lecture discusses how appeals to both big data and apocalyptic alarm define the most widely circulated environmental stories. While powerful for some groups, these appeals do not speak to the increasingly unequal impacts of global warming. "'The Science is Clear'" makes a case for narratives that develop localized, lived accounts of climate change by drawing from examples that at once contribute on-the-ground knowledge and envision possible futures beyond catastrophe.
