Dr. Aaron Thierry says that "recent events in the US illustrate just how widespread and influential climate denial has become; ... with potentially catastrophic implications for all of us." Aaron Thierry asks what we can do to better promote scientific understanding of this crucial issue. And this talk is his contribution.
The title card of Thierry's presentation is a quote by Martin Luther King Jr.: "There is such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action".
Aaron Thierry received his PhD in Ecology from the University of Sheffield and researched the impacts of global warming on the carbon cycle in Arctic ecosystems. He teaches at Sheffield's Department of Animal and Plant Sciences.
Thanks to CNU, that's Carbon Neutral University, at Sheffield for organizing and recording this talk. The date was March 26, 2017.
