Climate Science – The Unfolding Story: A review of the scientific method with an emphasis on the human element of problem solving and particular reference to the challenges of understanding complex natural systems like the Earth’s climate. The presentation emphasizes the importance of reproducible observation, measurement, imagination, creativity and critical thinking in good scientific practice and examines the role of skepticism and debate as scientific theories and models evolve. 2) Beyond Climate Change: A review of compelling arguments to develop and adopt sustainable energy options above and beyond the issue of global warming, including the impacts on air quality, marine acidification, peak oil and the conservation of carbon reserves for manufactured goods. It provides an introduction to emerging topics in the science and technology of carbon neutral energy alternatives, including innovations in new materials, organic polymers, bio-mimetic photosynthesis, hydrogen production and storage.
