Heard on Campus: Christopher Joyce

April 23, 2013

“I have been in science journalism for 30 years, and controversy is always great in news because that’s what makes people listen. When a dog bites a man, nobody cares. I have never seen more scientific disinformation bandied about on any topic in my life than fracking.”

-- Christopher Joyce, science correspondent with National Public Radio. Joyce spoke April 22 in the HUB-Robeson Center Auditorium on Earth Day at University Park. His talk, “Scientists and Journalists: Codependents in the Age of Disappearing Media” was sponsored by the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute and the Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment. A video recording of the talk will be available at www.eesi.psu.edu.
