AGU Fall Meeting and AMS Annual Meeting

I had the honor of being invited to give a talk at the American Geophysical Union fall meeting just a few weeks ago!  24,000 geoscientists attended the conference in San Francisco.  I discussed ways to use our climate change myth-debunking MOOC videos as a resource and how I use them in my college courses.  You can find my slides here.

You can find links to these resources in a previous blog post here.  

If you are attending the AMS conference in New Orleans, I'm presenting on how these videos can be particularly useful for meteorologists who may lack formal climate change communication training, yet are forced to interact with the public about the topic regularly.  My talk is Tuesday at 2:45 in Room 353.  If you are an educator, you might as well plop yourself in that room all afternoon!  My friend Mark Seefeldt has put together quite the program for us.  I am co-authoring a talk at 2:00 in the same room.  At 3:30 there's a talk by this year's AMS Teaching Excellence award winner, my old dynamics professor and author of the dynamics text book I use, Dr. Jon Martin.  It should be an interesting afternoon!
