The Weekend Wonk: Google Hangout with Greenman – Climate Science and Climate Solutions

May 10, 2013

I got an invite from ITN network in the UK to join a Google Hangout with some unnamed folks and discuss climate.  Sounded like fun, so I signed on.

When I got the guest list just before the show, I was very pleased to see that climate denier James Delingpole was on it. Unfortunately, James must have gotten the same list, because he bailed at the last minute, with no explanation. (why am I  not surprised?)

They tried to get Mark Morano, but no luck.

The final list included Paul Butler, Ocean scientist of Bangor University in the UK, who has been doing some nice research on some interesting and long lived crustaceans as climate proxies, and Jay Famiglietti, an Earth Scientist at UC Irvine.

So, anyhow, it made for a nice conversation but not many fireworks, in this case, more light than heat.  I managed to bring up some of my current hobby horses around renewable energy and the coming disruption to utilities – but missed the opportunity to plug DarkSnowProject – Jason Box is going to kick my butt for that – but I thought the program would go longer.  Will update soon on exciting developments there.

    FWIW I’ve been doing my little bit to try to publicise The Dark Snow Proect. But it’s hard going; I’m clearly not suited to such things.
