Why does science matter? UMCES scientists weigh in

April 21, 2017

Proposed funding cuts and debate over climate change is questioning a subject that has given us a variety of technological and other advances from cell phones to modern medicine. We asked some of our scientists at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science to discuss why science matters, not just to them, but to our world and everyone in it. They cite examples from history and even our labs, and discuss the unforeseen values of discovery.

On this 25 minute podcast, hear UMCES scientists Walter Boynton, Mike Roman, Matt Fitzpatrick, Victoria Coles, Thomas Miller, Al Place, Russell Hill, Jamie Pierson, David Secor, Eric Davidson and Don Boesch.
