Announcing The Global Warming Tour!

Following his successful 2015 Relativity Tour, astrophysicist and educator Dr. Jeffrey Bennett decided to turn his attention to public understanding of global warming. The tour is currently underway, so contact Dr. Bennett if you are interested in hosting an event. Note: There is no speaking fee for this tour; in some cases Dr. Bennett will even pay his own travel expenses, if the host institution can draw a large enough audience and fill his local schedule sufficiently to make it worth his time and expense.

Global Warming Demystified

The Science, The Consequences, and The Solutions
(and why conservatives and liberals can all agree)

gwd-coverTalk Description: Is human-induced global warming real or a hoax? Most people will express an opinion on this question, but relatively few can back their opinions with solid evidence. This is true on both sides, as most “believers” are no better able to explain the scientific case for global warming than “skeptics” are able to make a case against it. Many times we’ve even heard politicians and media pundits say “I am not a scientist” to avoid the issue altogether. But the truth is, the basic science is not that difficult. In this presentation, noted educator Jeffrey Bennett will give you the foundation you need to speak intelligently about the science behind global warming, and show you why the solutions to this important problem are ones that people of all political persuasions can agree on. If you have any questions or doubts about the reality of global warming or what we should do about it as a nation, you’re sure to come away enlightened. The level is suitable for anyone of middle school age and up. The talk is based on Dr. Bennett's global warming primer.

Presented by Astrophysicist and educator Jeffrey Bennett
