During this time of social distancing, the American Academy aims to stay connected with members and continue our tradition of convening experts from across disciplines to discuss important issues. We invited members to join Academy President David Oxtoby and member Naomi Oreskes, author of Merchants of Doubt and Why Trust Science?, for a Q&A by videoconference. The conversation dug deeper into her recent interview in The New Yorker about why many Americans reject the facts about the coronavirus and strategies for addressing their skepticism.
