Tonight, at 7:00 PM, I'll be giving a talk at the Stillwater Critical Thinking Club on climate change, focusing on sea level rise and weather whiplash. We'll be discussing the Arctic Vortex as part of that.
The Global and Local Impacts of Climate Change
Anthropogenic Climate Change, also misleadingly known as "Global Warming," has emerged as a significant reality affecting societies and economies around the world and at home. In this talk we'll examine the contentious questions of changes in weather patterns and sea level rise. Both of these effects of warming have already had impacts and these impacts are expected to increase in the future. What does the science say about "weather whiplash," severe storms, and the rise of seas in the near and longer term future, how certain are we of what may happen, and how severe might these impacts be?
Tuesday night, at 9:00 PM Eastern (8:00 PM Central) I'll be doing a tweeting thing with the MomsRising organization. To watch or participate, follow the hashtag #EcoTipTue.

Greg had us on the edge of our seats for 1 1/2 hours, fielding many questions from a skeptical group ... by the end we were all recognizing that climate change is not only measured by temperature (such as our recent 20 below readings) but more by undeniable rising sea levels and totally unpredictable flash floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. Tragically it may be too late for our self serving culture so easily influenced by the many deniers.
Thanks, Lee. The Critical Thinking talks are a great venue and the level of thinking and questioning from the audience was impressive and inspiring.
