Science Pub Portland: Climate Change
This is a past event. Thursday, April 4 at 7:00pm 9:00pm
Empirical Theater at OMSI 1945 S.E. Water Ave., Portland, OR 97214
Four Oregon State University faculty members from the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) have co-authored chapters of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessments, including the forthcoming 6th assessment. The IPCC is considered the gold standard for assessing the science behind, and the risks of, human-induced climate change.
Join these scientists, and CEOAS Dean Roberta Marinelli, as they discuss their experiences with the IPCC. How are IPCC authors chosen? How does such a large and diverse group reach consensus? How does the IPCC communicate its results? How has the group’s work been impacted by the U.S. administration’s skeptical and even hostile attitude toward climate science?
Doors open at 5 p.m.
