Keep Calm and Carry on: Prof. George Dertilis presents Catastrophe Theories and Direful Statistics


Were Kozloduy nuclear power plant and Greek earthquakes ever a reason to panic? Just how much did Chernobyl affect people’s holidays? After the bee disappears, will we all die or just be short of honey? Is according to Trump and the Germans a Wall the answer to all our problems? Directeur d’études at the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and Professor emeritus at the University of Athens, George B. Dertilis, explains angry and appeasing tweets, worst case scenarios, the Armageddon and Irony in a totally off-key lecture. This episode is in Greek language.
