NO Quat Tea 11/18

Hello all, we will not be meeting for Quat Tea this week 11/18. We will also not be meeting prior to AGU – have a great holiday season! We will reconvene the 2nd week of Winter Term 2012. Any ideas for talk topics or speakers should be sent to Josh Cuzzone.

However, we will have Paleobeer at the Brew Station, 5pm, 11/18.

New article on upcoming UN Climate negotiations

The most recent Nature highlights an article commenting on the upcoming UN climate change negotiations to take place in South Africa, and whether our ever-evolving world governments can reach an agreement that is “better” than the Kyoto Protocol.

Richard Alley Condon Lecture

Richard Alley, a geologist, glaciologist, and climate change scientist will present the 2011 Thomas Condon Lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at Oregon State University.

The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is designed for a non-specialist audience. It is titled “Get Rich and Save the World, or Else: Challenges and Opportunities in a Warming World.”

The presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Austin Auditorium of the LaSells Stewart Center on the OSU campus. Named after a pioneer of Oregon geology, the Condon Lecture helps to interpret significant scientific research for non-scientists.

Alley is the Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences and associate of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at The Pennsylvania State University. A widely recognized and honored scientist, he studies climate records, flow behavior, and sedimentary deposits of large ice sheets to help predict future changes in climate and sea level. Alley has conducted 14 field expeditions to Antarctica, Greenland and Alaska.

Alley will also give a more technical presentation in the George Moore Lecture, “Slip Sliding Away: Ice-sheet Discoveries and Sea-level Rise,” on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 4 p.m. in Gilfillan Auditorium.

Alley was the presenter for the PBS television special on climate and energy, Earth: The Operators’ Manual, and author of the book.  His popular account of climate change and ice cores,The Two-Mile Time Machine, was Phi Beta Kappa’s science book of the year in 2001.

The lecture is sponsored by the OSU Department of Geosciences and College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences. More information is available online at http://bit.ly/rS1ZWB.

Update: Here are the presentation slides: part1, part2, part3, part4.

A new article about the articulation of climate science…

http://www.physicstoday.org/resource/1/phtoad/v64/i10/p48_s1

A well-written article about the increasing knowledge gap between scientists and the public – something we can all relate to and hopefully fix!
