23|5 Talks at the AMS Annual Meeting

Posted by Dan Satterfield

Screen Shot 2016-02-28 at 8.33.00 PMI was honored to be master of ceremonies at the 23-5 session (23.5 degrees is the tilt of Earth respect to the ecliptic) at the AMS Annual Meeting in January, and the video from the session is now online. The talks were all fantastic, and the evening ended with the movie based on Dr. Oreskes’ book Merchants of Doubt. When someone who thinks climate change is a hoax made up by the Chinese, is on his way to be nominated for President of the United States, some sanity seems very necessary.

FYI: I am still looking for the talk by Bill Gail the past President of the AMS.

There is a longer talk by Dr. Oreskes below. She is now Professor of History of Science at Harvard.
