Three Tenors of Climate Change

Thursday, October 4, 2018

Science is about facts, and scientific fact is at the center of climatologist Dr. Ben Santer’s work on global warming. The esteemed scientist from Lawrence Livermore Labs will join Milwaukee-based filmmaker Chip Duncan and global health expert Dr. Hernando Garzon from California’s Kaiser Permanente for an evening of discussion about receding glaciers, global climate modeling and the long term health consequences facing a warming world. Duncan begins the evening with a discussion of his documentation of North America’s iciest landscapes going back to 1991. Santer tells the story of a warming climate through computer modeling and satellite imagery accented by personal stories that begin with his participation in the 1995 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Garzon then weaves a personal story that begins with his work navigating crises like 9/11, the Haitian earthquake and West Africa’s Ebola crisis.
