UTSA: Pathway to a Post-Global Warming Future
The media often portrays our climate future as a choice
The media often portrays our climate future as a choice between bleak and bleaker, which may seem justified given the many impacts of global warming that we are already seeing. But it doesn’t have to be that way, because if we understand the science behind global warming, then we can also see a pathway to its solution. In this presentation, Dr. Bennett will give you a brief overview of the surprisingly simple basic science behind global warming and of the consequences we can expect from this warming. He will then explain how we can in principle take the steps necessary to envision a “post-global warming” future, meaning a future in which today’s children will someday be able to talk about global warming as a once-serious problem that we found a way to solve. Note: This talk builds upon Dr. Bennett’s freely posted global warming primer.
Bennett, an astronomer and published science writer many times over, makes the science behind global warming clear and easy to understand in the hopes of defining its solutions and making them accessible to all.
He estimates reaching more than 10,000 people in 25 cities during his 2015 Relativity Tour, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity.
