The Weekend Wonk:Jennifer Francis’ Newest Lecture online

February 16, 2013

Cool that she opens the lecture with my video, which was cribbed and re-edited from one of her previous lectures – but if you want to cut to the chase go to about 20 minutes in, that’s where I started learning stuff.

I’ve been meaning to edit this down to just the best parts, – its long – and I probably will, – but more important to get it posted and circulated,  because Dr. Francis is leading one of the most important discussions in climate science right now.

    “The amount of heat energy released into the atmosphere from the Arctic Ocean in the fall is enough to power the entire United States for 25 years.” I do wish she hadn’t said that. It’s like being whacked by a 2X4. So many folks think that climate change will just be an inconvenience that we’ll have to live with. Except we won’t. At least, not most of us.

      As James Carville said when talking about the GOP reaction to Romney’s loss, sometimes only “pine on skull” gets the message across.

    That was brilliant. All makes sense of how the processes interact and codepend.

  3. Dr. Francis is brilliant. Doesn’t matter though, if people won’t listen.,

  4. Nick Carter Says:

    I know I tend to be a name dropper, but I have to say I was impressed that this weather summit was named after Glenn Gerberg, a colleague who used to work at my tv station.
