From the origins of the universe to the daily determination of justice in our courts, facts are foundational to our lives. What happens when facts are dismissed, suppressed, seen as optional or even replaced with "alternative facts"?

Watch live as Lawrence Krauss, internationally renowned theoretical physicist and director of the Origins Project at Arizona State University, and James Weinstein, the Dan Cracchiolo Chair in Constitutional Law at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at ASU, have a dialogue about ramifications and strategies to effectively communicate facts in our current political reality.

This event is part of Second Nature's 2017 Presidential Climate Leadership Summit, held in conjunction with ASU's Sustainability Solutions Festival 2017.
