Historical NoteReturn to Top

Climate science is a vital area of research today, especially as the severity of the climate, disruptions playing out across the globe are predicted to have long-term, catastrophic consequences. Yet, in 2018, this area of research is still highly contested. We often hear the data behind climate change science, but we rarely hear the voices of those who study it. In an attempt to learn more, six students in the Fall 2018 HIST 6860 Oral History course interviewed members of the Utah State University scientific community to hear their perspectives about climate science. During the interviews, the scientists shared information about the changing climate, including how it affects communities. They also talked about what it is like to study and teach climate science and how individuals can prioritize certain actions in order to mitigate the effects of climate change.
