Climate Change Elevator Pitch: Glaciologist Mauri Pelto

March 4, 2015

In 2012, I tagged along with Professor Mauri Pelto on his annual survey of glaciers in the Northern Cascades, something he’s been doing for 3 decades now.

He is the consummate professional, with an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject, (his valuable blog here) and the stamina of a mountain goat.  We were lucky enough to catch up with him in San Francisco a few months ago.

    The “Elevator Glitch”
    Synopsis:
    Denier gets into elevator that 97% structural engineers thought had a 50% chance of failing by 2030.
    Starts ranting about why the planet isn’t warming, is all a hoax and that it isn’t bad and that it’s a conspiracy to impose a new world order yada yada yada etc…
    Cable snaps.
    Rant fades with Doppler shift…
    End.
