Global warming talk

This morning, I was the last of four speakers, each giving an hour-long talk, at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Collectively, we were the program for the conference “Do You CO2?,” about global warming and climate change, sponsored by the McMaster Science for Peace / Pugwash Society.

The other speakers were a McMaster grad student, giving a supposedly “neutral” account on climate change, a fellow from Greenpeace, and a fellow from “Friends of Science,” a group about which has this to say.

I only got this speaking assignment late Thursday afternoon; I was replacing Severn Cullis-Suzuki (David Suzuki’s daughter), who works with the same speakers’ bureau I do; she had to bow out because of a family emergency. So, I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare — but my talk was very well received. I recorded it, and hope to make a podcast out of it, in my copious spare time. :)
