Interview with Chris Mooney is Up

I've just posted our first podcast interview. Click here to listen to a 3-minute interview with Chris Mooney, author of The Republican War on Science, as we chat with him during the lunch break at the conference. It's quick and he's a great speaker, so be sure to check it out!

The Environmental Wars Afternoon Speakers, Part 1

Well, it’s 94 degrees (or 34, depending on which side of the border you’re from) here in Pasadena and it’s pretty much unbearable for a Vancouver resident like myself. Thankfully, we’ve been inside an air-conditioned room all day, which actually feels like a blessing on the odd occasion!

The day is going by quickly, and continues to be interesting. We've gotten a couple of podcast audio interviews, which I'll be posting later. In the meantime, I’ve tried to gather some notes from the first half of this afternoon. They aren’t as extensive as my morning notes, but as we’ve been hearing from people here that they think it’s really great that we’re reporting out live, I’ll post them, as is, anyway.

A Conference with No Skeptics

Climate change “skeptics” attending the Environmental Wars conference in Pasadena sponsored by the Science Skeptic Magazine will have been disappointed by the stark lack of skepticism expressed by the morning speakers. As Sarah is also reporting in the accompanying posts, even the speaker who was invited specifically to defend the right-of-centre political position said unequivocally that that the science behind climate change has been proved beyond doubt.

Morning Speakers at the Environmental Wars

These are my quick notes from the morning's speakers. I've done my best to keep them concise and accurate, but liveblogging is never the most polished format. I hope you find them interesting! Richard will also be posting commentary.

David Baltimore

Quick bio – President of CalTech, awarded Nobel Prize at age 37. Something of a science celebrity. He does not call himself an expert on global warming, but believes he represents an informed position.
