Talk face-to-face with climate scientists

A group of climate scientists are swinging through the Forgotten Coast this week, offering local residents a chance to talk with them face-to face.

On Friday, Jan. 7, they’ll be in Port St. Joe at the Corinne Costin Gibson Memorial Public Library at 10:30 a.m., and then later that day, at 1:30 p.m. they’ll be in Eastpoint at the Eastpoint Beer Company.

After events in Tallahassee and Wakulla Springs over the weekend, they’ll be in Apalachicola on Sunday, Jan. 9 at 1 p.m. at the Scipio Creek Pavilion.

Climate Up Close is a group of climate scientists committed to making the essentials of climate science accessible to a broad audience. They believe Americans should reach their own judgments about climate science by seeing the evidence for themselves and putting their questions directly to climate scientists. The scientists visit communities to discuss climate science face-to face. Presenters include scientists who currently work at NOAA, University of California – Berkeley, New York University and Harvard University.

Sponsor of the program is Climate Up Close, an apolitical, policy-neutral and financially independent group, whose events are unpaid. The work is performed on a volunteer basis and supported by small donations. Current scientist members include Dr. Nadir Jeevanjee, Katie Latimer, Dr. Aaron Match, Dr. Jake Seeley, and Nathaniel Tarshish.
