Time:5:45-7:30 p.m.
Description:Sheril Kirshenbaum of The Energy Poll at The University of Texas at Austin presents a talk titled "Unscientific America," examining the growing rift between science and mainstream American culture. As director of The Engergy Poll, Kirshenbaum works to enhance public understanding of energy issues and improve communication between scientists, policymakers and the public.

The vast majority of Americans do not see the ways in which science holds relevance in their lives, and too many scientists are unable to explain why their work matters. Meanwhile, partisan politics, a new media environment and religious ideologies have magnified the growing schism between science and mainstream American culture. The scientific community, argues Kirshenbaum, must find new ways of reaching out or we will fail to influence the public, inform the decision-making process, and rise to meet the greatest challenges of the 21st century.

Kirshenbaum is the author of two books and her writing regularly appears in magazines, newspapers and scientific publications.
