Scientists have been predicting climate change impacts with extraordinary accuracy for decades, even as fossil fuel interests have attacked and tried to undermine them. How do they get it so right? Speakers will explain the models, satellites, marine robots, and millennia worth of soil, ice and tree ring samples that are illuminating our dangerous path ahead — and that helped win the United Nations’ climate science program a Nobel Peace Prize.

Tickets for this event ($5) can be purchased online; 21+ only.

John Upton is a features journalist at Climate Central, which researches and reports on the changing climate. He has science and business degrees and more than a decade of international reporting experience. Guided by science and by extensive field reporting, he tells stories about climate change’s impacts and solutions.

Maureen E. Raymo earned her PhD at Columbia University and is currently the Bruce C. Heezen Lamont Research Professor and the Director of the Lamont-Doherty Core Repository at Columbia. She is a paleoceanographer/marine geologist who studies the history and causes of climate change in the Earth’s past.

This event is part of the 2018 Taste of Science Festival.
