PAST MEERTALKS

Jan 7, 2023

Dr. Gulrez Shah Azhar explores mechanisms to mitigate the mortality effects of heatwaves. To generate appropriate local heat adaptation measures, he conducted sixteen in-depth interviews of academics, climate-health researchers, medical doctors, community activists, urban planners, and policy advisors with expertise in heatwaves and India.

THE APPALLINGLY BAD NEOCLASSICAL ECONOMICS OF CLIMAGE CHANGE  Professor Steve Keen, author, economist, and Distinguished Fellow of University College London's Institute for Strategy, Resilience & Security talks about how economists made their own predictions of climate change damages using three spurious methods.

November 6, 2022

Since 1988 the IPCC has been the world's leading resource on climate change science and policy recommendations. What if they were working not for the planet but against it? Kyle Kimball's research elucidates how the core function of the IPCC is not to highlight the velocity of climate change but to validate the erroneous conclusions of neoclassical economics.

MINERAL SUPPLY CHALLENGES TO PHASE OUR FOSSIL FUELS with Simon Michaux, Assoc. Prof. of Geometallurgy at the Geological Survey of Finland). Presentation and discussion about data that's been collected on global mineral reserves, as the world gradually moves toward renewable energy.

FACING OUR CLIMATE ANXIETY HEALTH CRISIS: Human responses to the global climate crisis and the earth’s current ecological state tend to span a wide range, including shock, grief denial numbness and rage. Embedded within the catastrophic risk of the climate crisis or issues of social justice, economic inequality, and cultural bias. Britt Wray shares how we can create personal practices and collaborative activities to strengthen ourselves and our communities?  As requested by the speaker, this meeting was not recorded.

MARINE CLOUD BRIGHTENING: Is It Feasible? with Michael Diamond, CIRES (Cooperative Institute for Research In Environmental Sciences at University of Colorado Boulder) Postdoctoral Visiting Fellow at NOAA's Chemical Studies Laboratory

July 3, 2022

Dr. Daniel Cziczo, Professor and Department Head of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences speaks about the unanticipated impacts of ‘designer’ aerosols suggested for increasing Earth’s albedo.

June 5, 2022

Leon Simons presents his most recent analysis of atmospheric aerosols, how they affect the Earth’s albedo (surface reflectivity), and their impact on global warming.  He discusses the global dimming effect caused by atmospheric aerosols and the risk of a dramatic jump in global warming due to termination shock, a situation where atmospheric aerosol levels drop quickly because of sudden reductions in fossil fuel use and sulfur content.
