As one of our commenters has helpfully pointed out, Michael Mann will be giving a presentation at the University of California, Santa Cruz, this Wednesday.
Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University, will give a lecture on global climate change on Wednesday, May 10, at UC Santa Cruz. His talk–"Global Climate Change: Past and Future"–will take place at 7 p.m. at the Seymour Center at UCSC’s Long Marine Laboratory. The event is free and open to the public.
He’s going to be speaking on topics very close to our hearts:
Mann is one of the leading authorities on global climate change. His research has been central to establishing the growing human influence on climate and, as a result, has been the target of criticism from skeptics of global warming. Mann will present the evidence for a human influence on the climate of recent decades. Such evidence includes instrumental measurements available for the past two centuries, paleoclimate observations spanning more than a millennium, and comparisons of the predictions from computer models with observed patterns of climate change.
If, by any chance, someone is in the area and can give a report on what transpires, I’m sure Steve will be most interested. Hopefully, Dr Mann will not have to dash off for a flight back to Philly and sticks around for a few questions at the end, you never know…
