Live Feed of the AGU Chapman Conference on Climate Communication starting... now!

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) are trying something new this week. They're running a conference on climate communication where many of the talks are being broadcast live online. Online viewers are encouraged to submit questions which will be put to the talkers at the end of their talks.

I strongly recommend you check it out if you can. Today alone features an amazing array of speakers - Spencer Weart, Mike Mann, Max Boykoff, Richard Alley, Stephan Lewandowsky - and that's just the first day. Right now, Michael MacCracken is giving a fascinating talk on the early history of climate science.

Check out the list of scheduled live talks, which I've been informed will be growing as more talks are added to the live feed. On Wednesday, I'll be presenting results from my PhD research into the psychology of consensus, and I may happen to mention the Cook et al. consensus paper along the way. Hopefully this will be broadcast online as I imagine there may be a few people interested in sending in a few questions.

UPDATE (h/t to Baerbel): My session will be broadcast live on Wednesday,2:00 p.m. — 2:15 p.m. You can watch it live and also submit questions which will be put to me during the Q&A session:
