Climate Change lecture series
Chabot Space and Science Center
Sunday, Nov. 15th, 3pm
Let's gather together afterward for further discussion. Details will be sent to those who respond with interest.
A Really Inconvenient Truth:
Why Climate Change is Much Worse Than You’ve Been Told and What We Must Do Now
Dan Miller is Managing Director of The Roda Group, a seed stage venture capital group now focusing on Clean Tech. Dan is the former Chairman of the Foundation Board of Chabot Space & Science Center. At Chabot, Dan is working with Bill Nye the Science Guy to develop a climate change exhibit geared towards kids and their parents. Dan is also a member of Al Gore’s Climate Project and was trained by Mr. Gore to give the An Inconvenient Truth slide show, though Dan’s talk is not based on Mr. Gore’s. He is also on the board of Climate Healers and has worked with leading climate scientists on how to present climate change to the public.
Dan’s presentation will focus on why the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reports are actually best case scenarios. He will present recent scientific data that has not been covered in the media and he will also discuss psychological aspects of how we react to the threat of climate change. Dan will present a more realistic (and scary) outlook on what will happen if we don’t start to reduce greenhouse gas emissions soon. He will then lay out what steps we need to take to address this critical situation, including a discussion of “geo-engineering” solutions.
This talk is not appropriate for children.
