    The topic was interesting and relevant. The speaker did a good job of summarizing the latest research and the enormous policy challenges ahead. There was a lot of information packed into a short talk--perhaps a longer format might serve the topic better.

    I thought Marilyn Brown was an excellent speaker on Climate and Energy. She delivered her lecture in layman's language and covered the topic very well. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The Atlanta Botanical Garden was a delightful location to have the event.

    Thank you much!

    Highly qualified, personable speaker. Made points clearly: warming is there and the extreme increase is largely man-made, ramifications — small and large scale, possible technical solutions, and policy needs.

    The talk was ok but I was expecting it to be more specific and in-depth regarding local and national policies.
