Topic, "synthesis talk: Physics, Climate and You"

Hi. This month we will have a fascinating discussion at our Cafe Sci at 7PM on Wednesday 6 April, at Taste, in College Park.

This talk is one of a new style of talks we will have at CafeŠ Scientifique, that we're calling "synthesis". Instead of a sharp, deep focus in some scientific field on the bleeding-edge of research, we'll show a broader topic and link it to several scientific and social areas, in a way a researcher in a specific field might find hard to do.

This month, our own Pete Dunkelberg gives us a wider perspective on the specific concentrated disciplines of math and physics and climatology to help give context and explain some of the principles and data of climate change. He'll touch on the importance of understanding it and the prospects for humanity in the near term, and what we could do about it.

Pete Dunkelberg is an advocate of good science education, and as a member of Florida Citizens for Science, helped defend Florida's new educational standards from being polluted with nonscientific ideas. He's active in the Florida Native Plant Society, 1Sky, and has written articles like "Irreducible Complexity Demystified" and "Mystery in the Air".

Taste is near the corner of Princeton Street (really Smith Street after the fork) and Edgewater Drive, so about 2 minutes from I-4 to parking. One can park on the street or in the parking lot behind Taste.

From I-4, drive a few blocks to Edgewater Drive. At the intersection, you should see a orange building ahead of you, labeled "Taste". Park on the street or behind Taste.
