I took these photos of Jupiter and some of the Moon's craters couple of nights ago with an eyepiece camera through my telescope that I hope some of you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy taking them. ... See MoreSee Less

How to Solve Climate Change Without Breaking the Bank

April 16, 2016, 12:30pm

As many skeptics know, rampant disinformation distorts the science on anthropogenic global warming, but did you know the disinformation campaign extends to the economics of climate change as well? What can economics really teach us about designing climate policy? Will mitigating cost us, or save us? A careful look at the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and other recent reports, along with a look at the consensus among economists, can help us separate science from fiction on the economics of climate change mitigation. About our speaker: Emily Church is a long-time skeptic and PhD candidate in neuroscience who has suffered for years from an obsession with climate change economics and climate policy.
