An entertaining talk about the basics of climate science through stories from the lives of scientists, from Benjamin Franklin to Jennifer Francis. Who was the first radical leftist to contribute to climate science? How did the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand lead to an important climate discovery? How did the Gulf Stream get its name?
If you are new to climate science, this is a fun way to get started. If you already know it all, just come and be entertained.
Jim Eachus is the organizer of Sarasota Climate Change Meetup. He is a retired computer geek with a PhD in theoretical physics. Jim will show slides, tell stories, and disagree with the most powerful man on the planet.
