Climate change is a popular topic in today's society. It is difficult to go a day without hearing something about it in the media. Let's take the emotions out of the equation and learn from the world renowned scientist, Dr. Judith Curry, about the science behind climate change.

We will come away from this webinar with a better understanding of the following:

• the history of climate and climate science
• the facts, fiction, and the unsettled aspects of climate science
• key climate studies
• recent developments
• influence humans and the petroleum industry have to impact the climate

This webinar is categorized under the Health, Safety, and Environment discipline.

Judith Curry

President/Co-Founder, CFAN

Dr. Judith Curry's career in academic research and administration, most recently at Georgia Tech, has led to her current focus on managing the translation of cutting-edge research to forecast products that support the mitigation of weather and climate risk for public and private sector decision makers.

Dr. Curry is also actively engaged at the intersection of science and public policy. She is frequently called upon to give Congressional testimony and serve as an expert witness on matters related to weather and climate.

Dr. Curry is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Geophysical Union.

Dr. Curry received a Ph.D. in atmospheric science from the University of Chicago in 1982. Prior to joining the faculty at Georgia Tech, she has held faculty positions at the University of Colorado, Penn State University and Purdue University. Dr. Curry's research interests span a variety of topics in atmospheric sciences, including: climate dynamics of the Arctic; climate dynamics of extreme weather events; cloud microphysics; and reasoning about climate uncertainty. Dr. Curry is coauthor of the books Thermodynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans and Thermodynamics, Kinetics and Microphysics of Clouds and has published over 190 journal articles.

Dr. Curry has recently served on the NASA Advisory Council Earth Science Subcommittee, the DOE Biological and Environmental Research Advisory Council and the National Academies Climate Research Committee and the Space Studies Board.

Curry is proprietor of the blog Climate Etc. (, which discusses current topics in climate science, climate and energy policy, challenges at the science-policy interface, and use of social media in engaging with the public on complex and controversial topics.
