World’s Biggest Science Conference Begins Dec. 5th.

Posted by Dan Satterfield

I’ve long wanted to attend the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, and I’ll finally get my chance in ten days. I’m also looking forward to meeting John Cook who writes Skeptical Science, and Dr. Richard Alley of Penn. State University. There’s a workshop on Wednesday, that will include all three of us actually, and if you’re in San Francisco it’s free and open to the public!

Dr. Alley is one of the world’s top climate experts, and if you haven’t read his book The Two Mile Time Machine, then it should be tops on your list. It’s truly one of the most fascinating (and intriguing) books on climate science ever written. John Cook, of course, is the writer of the fantastic climate myth debunking website Skeptical Science, and has recently published a book as well. Climate Change Denial: Heads in The Sand is available on Amazon here.

Both books will be very valuable. Especially, if you find yourself sitting next to a family member at Christmas dinner, whose science background consists of a Ph.D. in Fox News 😉

Five days of science, in one of the world’s greatest cities. It should be a blast!
