A Scientist Walks Into A Bar

Episodes feature recordings of talks given at Science on Tap events held in Portland, OR, and Vancouver, WA.

Jan 30, 2020

In this special episode we interview Robert Frank, economist and author of the new book Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work. He talks about using social and economic theories to encourage more climate-conscious behavior, and proposes structures for carbon taxes that wouldn't require painful sacrifices from anyone.

As he says in the interview, "every little bit helps, way more than you think."
