Richard Somerville gives TEDx Talk at UCSD

In November 2014, Science Director Richard Somerville spoke at a TEDx event at the University of California, San Diego, on “What Should We Do About Climate Change?” His talk, which was recorded and has been posted to the TEDx YouTube page, addressed the idea of climate scientists as “planetary physicians” who can provide the public with factual information and useful advice about human-caused climate change. The big question Richard posed is whether people and governments can muster the needed political will and act decisively in time to prevent severe climate disruption.
