Seeking Climate Clarity

Needs a location

Could frightening claims of world-wide climate change be mistaken? Do we really know that climate change is happening, and that humanity is the cause? In optimistic and pessimistic scenarios, how bad could it get? ... even in the Bay Area?! Finally, have we passed a global climate-change "tipping point," or do possible adjustments to economics and policy — stemming from a popular climate clarity — give us hope?

Our speaker is Dr. Carl Mears, Senior Scientist at Remote Sensing Systems. He was a lead author for the U.S. Climate Change Science Program, and he has contributed to the IPCC, the Nobel Prize-winning International Panel on Climate Change.
