Video of Keynote talk online now

Last February 2011, I traveled to St. John’s, Newfoundland to give the Keynote Lecture at the Aldrich Interdisciplinary Conference at Memorial University. During this lecture, I spoke on the need for academics to participate actively in the public discourse of science and drew upon some case study failures of scientific communication, including the propagation of pseudo-science in creationism, as well as the ignoring of science in the business evaluation of climate change.  The organizing committee of the conference recorded my talk and have since posted it on Youtube in some easy-to-digest segments (see below):.
