Yale Forum May webcast to probe author and professor David Victor’s "three species" of climate skeptics, who, he says, won’t be going away any time soon.

As discussions drag on over what to do about our warming climate, let’s step back to reconsider the battlefield of rhetoric and discord. And how and whether it eventually can lead to harmony.

Political scientist and climate change policy expert David G. Victor, of the University of California at San Diego, encourages changing labels and strategies in ways that recognize a more complex political landscape. No more “climate denialist” name-calling, he urges.

Co-author of the recently published mitigation report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Victor will be the featured guest on The Yale Forum’s next 30onClimate webcast — May 15 at 11:30 am PDT (2:30 pm EDT).

30onClimate moderator Bruce Lieberman will interview Professor Victor about the complicated rhetorical landscape of climate change, and importantly, what the latest report from the IPCC has to say about where the globe’s climate is headed and what we can do about it.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by 30onClimate. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

"Tracking Carbon In A Warming World"

The “Keeling curve” image of rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations is one of the most iconic in the climate science literature, with a potentially strong message as average concentrations exceed the 400 parts per million threshold.

But a challenging funding environment might soon leave the historic monitoring program in its wake. In that case, how will we track CO2 concentrations in the future? And what would the loss of the Mauna Loa record mean for scientists’ ability to track our changing climate?
Tune in on March 19 with climate scientists Ralph Keeling from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, Calif., and Britton Stephens from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Boulder, Colo., on these important topics.

Questions Pre/Post-Webcast: 30onClimate@yaleclimatemediaforum.org.

Participants:

RALPH KEELING directs the Scripps CO2 Program at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) in La Jolla, CA. He is also a Professor and the Principal Investigator for the Atmospheric Oxygen Research Group at SIO.

Keeling’s research interests include measurements of variations in atmospheric oxygen, recent perturbations to the global carbon cycle, air-sea gas exchange, detection of ocean heat storage and transport using atmospheric gases, and paleoclimate theory. His father, the late Charles David Keeling, was the first person to make high-precision continuous measurements of CO2 levels in the atmosphere from Mauna Loa, Hawaii, resulting in the famous “Keeling Curve” charting CO2′s rise globally. Today, Ralph Keeling leads this program, which faces termination because of budget cuts.

BRITTON STEPHENS is a scientist in the Earth Observing Laboratory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Co. His research has focused on developing and deploying new instruments for tower-, ship-, and aircraft-based observations of atmospheric O2 and CO2, and on synthesizing data sets and models to elucidate global carbon cycle processes.

Stephens led a synthesis of global airborne CO2 observations with a collection of atmospheric transport models that resulted in a major revision to scientists’ understanding of the latitudinal distribution of carbon sinks. He was a principal investigator on a three-year global airborne survey of greenhouse and related gases that collected an unprecedented data set of more than 90 species from the surface to the tropopause and nearly pole to pole in all seasons. Stephens has maintained a network of mountaintop CO2 instruments in the U.S. Rocky Mountains since 2005 that is being used to investigate regional carbon cycling and disturbance impacts. He also developed and operates a continuous atmospheric O2/CO2 instrument on a ship transiting the Southern Ocean between Chile and Antarctica.

BRUCE LIEBERMAN (moderator) is a freelance science writer based in Southern California near San Diego. He has written about climate change for more than a decade.

Yale Forum regular contributor Bruce Lieberman will host a
discussion on the unique and demanding challenges that communicators must overcome when addressing climate change issues. What exactly is it about climate change that makes it what communicators call a “wicked” issue? Are climate scientists the solution … or themselves part of the problem? And who, exactly, is best positioned to address which diverse audience segment?

NOTE: This webcast will be at 12 pm PST / 3 pm EST

Participants:

BRUCE LIEBERMAN (moderator) is a freelance science writer based in Southern California near San Diego. He has written about climate change for more than a decade.

RICHARD ALLEY, Ph.D., a professor in Penn State University’s Department of Geosciences, is a Member of the National Academy of Sciences and the author of award-winning books such as The Two-Mile Time Machine and Earth: The Operators’ Manual, the latter of which is also a PBS documentary. Widely recognized as an outstanding science communicator, Alley is a member of the United Nations’ IPCC.

SUSANNE MOSER, Ph.D., directs her own independent research and consulting firm in Santa Cruz, California. A frequent speaker and author on science communication issues, Moser is a Social Science Research Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University and a Research Associate at the University of California-Santa Cruz, Institute for Marine Sciences. She has previously worked at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and with the Union of Concerned Scientists.

David G. Victor is a professor of international relations and director of the UC San Diego’s Laboratory on International Law and Regulation. His research focuses on highly regulated industries and how regulation
affects the operation of major energy markets. He is author of Global Warming Gridlock, which explains why the world hasn’t made much diplomatic progress on the problem of climate change. Victor has published 200 articles and books in venues that include Nature, Science, International Organization, The New York Times, Finance Times, Climatic Change, and the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy. He is a member of the advisory council for Nature Climate Change, a board member of the journal Climatic Change, and a member of the board of the Electric Power Research Institute.

Bruce Lieberman, an independent science journalist who has reported
on climate change for more than a decade, is a regular contributor to The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media.
