Climate Scientist Michael Mann
Professor Michael Mann is a personal hero of mine, principally because he connected, for me, the world of time series and principal components with climate science, showing there might be some small thing I can contribute to the discussion, and … Continue reading

Prof Mark Berliner on ‘Climate Change, Uncertainty & Communication’
Professor Mark Berliner addresses how to communicate climate change in the context of risk and uncertainty. I wish I could hot link the video here, but there is no “share” at the site, so I can only provide the link.

What’s the cheapest way to re-capture human emissions of carbon dioxide from natural reservoirs?
The news on reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions is not good. A famous study (“wedges”) on approaching the enormous problem released a pessimistic update recently, arguing we need many more of them. There is also so much we do … Continue reading
