I gave a talk entitled “Long Choices: On Climate Change and Carbon Dioxide” yesterday afternoon at the Unitarian Universalist Area Church, First Parish, Sherborn, MA. My darling wife, Claire, snapped a number of, uh, entertaining photos. This is one I’ll share.
It was a lot of stuff to cover in 70 minutes, and there were some good questions. I hope that in some way I got the audience to do what Professor Ray Pierrehumbert dedicates his book with, to Professor Arnold E. Ross, namely,
… who taught us to think deeply of simple things.
I can’t imagine any phrase which better sums up what Science, ancient and modern, is all about, and what its students appreciate.
Anyway, great hopes for the talk, that it will be heard again, at other locations.
