Climate reality week - John Cook from Skeptical to speak at UQ

UQ Climate for Change is running several cool events for Climate Reality week. A nationwide event organised by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), this week aims to remind everyone that we cannot escape the realities of climate change by ignoring the problem, we need to take action.

On Friday May 7th, John Cook, author of the website Skeptical Science will be giving a lunch time talk at the University of Queensland about "The reality of climate change" and true scientific skepticism (map).

After John's talk there will be a panel discussion also featuring:

Prof Ove Hoegh-Guldberg - Director, Global Change Institute, UQ and expert on coral reefs and climate change
Jessie Wells - Oxfam Australia
Megan Evans - UQ Climate for Change

As mentioned by Philip in the comments, there is a free Skeptical Science iPhone App. All the science straight to your phone (very handy for dealing with your climate skeptic cousin when you see them at your next family get together).

  1. If anyone liked my sceptical about the sceptics talk, John Cook's should be even better. Aside from the Skeptical Science site, he's written a free iPhone app that allows you to compare the "skeptic" arguments with reality. See his site for details.
