Scientific Evidence that Demands a Verdict: Our Changing Climate

Hands holding earth photo

Many students and colleagues in education are only aware of climate change by way of public discourse and social media. Drawing on recent scientific papers organized for a course he teaches at Berkeley, Jeffrey Reimer will show how the atmosphere is changing, that humans are the cause, and that there are consequences. These consequences may be viewed in the context of Earth's historical carbon cycles, which demonstrate well what the Earth will look like unless we consider every possible means to decarbonize the atmosphere. Reimer is particularly keen on carbon capture and sequestration and will therefore end by showing how, thanks to work in Berkeley's College of Chemistry, such capture is becoming increasingly feasible.
