Science Lecture - Our changing atmosphere: Evidence that demand a Verdict?

Lecture | September 21 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building

Many people are aware of climate change only by way of public discourse and social media. Drawing on recent scientific papers organized for a course he teaches at Berkeley, Jeff Reimer will show how the atmosphere is changing, that humans are the cause, and that there are consequences. These consequences may be viewed in the context of Earth’s historical carbon cycles, which demonstrate well what the Earth will look like unless we consider every possible means to decarbonize the atmosphere. Reimer’s research is focused on carbon capture and sequestration and will therefore end his talk by showing how such capture is becoming increasingly feasible.
