Dinner Disrupted: Climate Change, A Primer

Mon, March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

What causes climate change? And what are the effects of climate change? How do communities understand their influence on climate, and climate’s influence on them? Learn the human impact and consequences of climate change for the environment, and our lives.

Prof. Jason E. Smeardon, a Lamont Research Professor at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, provides an accessible overview of the science behind climate change and a clear-eyed assessment of the potential risks ahead.

Register here to attend this virtual event.

Professor Jason E. Smerdon’s research focuses on climate variability and change during the past several millennia and how past climates can help us understand future climate change. He publishes widely in the scientific literature on paleoclimate reconstruction techniques, the dynamics of past climate change and variability, and on assessing climate model simulations of the past and future using paleoclimatic information.  In 2013, Smerdon served as a Contributing Author to Assessment Report Five (WG1) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  He is co-author (with Ed Mathez) of the textbook Climate Change: The Science of Global Warming and Our Energy Future (Columbia University Press, September 2018). Smerdon received his B.A. in physics from Gustavus Adolphus College and his Ph.D. in applied physics from the University of Michigan.
