Paul Sabin: The Bet

"Our Gamble over Earth's Future"


Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 12:30pm
Location: Knapp Atrium in Pendleton East

The Betsy Wood Knapp '64 Lecture in the Social Sciences

Paul Sabin: The Bet: Our Gamble over Earth's Future

Are we headed for a world of scarce resources and environmental catastrophe, or will market forces and technological innovation yield greater prosperity? Paul Sabin, associate professor of history and American studies at Yale University, takes up this question in his book The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and our Gamble over Earth's Future. Using as a frame a highly publicized wager between celebrated biologist Paul Ehrlich and iconoclast economist Julian Simon over the future price of metals, Sabin examines the clash between environmentalists and their conservative critics and traces the origins of the political gulf that separates the two sides. The Bet was named a Best Science Book of 2013 by New Scientist.

Consenses' founder, Sally Taylor, has engaged artists from around the world, of every medium and genre, and brought them together by asking them to interpret one another's artwork in the vein of a game of "Telephone" and exppress it in their own medium. For example: a musician interprets a photo, a dance interprets their song, a painter interprets the dance, a perfumer interprets the painting,a poet interprets the perfume, and so on....until all five senses are represented. (none of the artists are privy to the identities of the otherparticipants)
