Climate change is a global emergency with increasingly frequent manifestations also in Italy. Moreover, the recent destabilisation of international balances has intensified the debate on energy supply sources. it is well known that fossil fuels are one of the main causes of global warming, but it is difficult to give up their use, at least in the near future. How is climate change perceived by Italians and who do they consider the most reliable interlocutors to counter it? What are their opinions on renewable energy and nuclear energy? What would Italians do to reduce pollution and traffic in cities?
The Science Technology and Society Yearbook 2023 (ed. Il Mulino) is characterised by its focus on the theme of ecological transition. The nineteenth edition also offers an unprecedented comparison with Germany, one of the main European realities. The text is also accompanied by an insert of coloured infographics summarising the most relevant data.
The Yearbook 2023 was presented on Wednesday 22 February 2023 at the University of Turin. Giuseppe Tipaldo and the students of the sociology of pseudoscience course joined the conversation with the curators, Giuseppe Pellegrini and Andrea Rubin.
