Creating a Climate for Change: Public lecture and webcast tonight

Alex Clapp from Simon Fraser University and I are presenting at a free public event tonight in downtown Vancouver sponsored by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, a research consortium run by the area universities. For those not in the lower mainland, there should be a live webcast as well.

This event Creating a Climate for Change will explore scientific and social factors that influence the public's uncertainty about climate change, including socio-cultural barriers such as long-held beliefs that weather is beyond human control.

Let us know how it goes, & what you learn from it.

(any interest in coming down to Calif and talking to my community?)

I'll be interested to hear how it went and what sorts of folks come out for this....because...

Assuming it all comes together, PICS is looking to have me give a (new) talk "The Machinery of Climate Anti-Science" in Prince George, Vancouver and Victoria, week of April 4th.

The PICS talks draw a nice turnout of people from the community

PICS talks:

I'm looking forward to it.
I'm told my PICS lecture is 7:30-9PM, UBC Robson Square, Wed April 6.

It's been ~decade since I visited the UBC campus, so that will be nice.
