Course Description

Dr. Beyer, a geophysicist and the retired Research Program Manager at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, asks: what is causing climate change, how severe is it, and how do we stay motivated to respond effectively to it? Pressing questions indeed, and Dr. Beyer will take them on with a clear and understandable look at the science behind global warming and the climate change it generates. He will use visual representations of large data sets and explain complex concepts in accessible language. He will also draw on psychologists’ research into how we react to disturbing information. That last body of lore might be crucial because we need paths forward, not despair but inertia. Let’s see if OLLI and Dr. Beyer can find some.
