Climate Change and Human Response: Past, Present and Future

Assistant Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences

Moderated by: Cynthia Wichelman, M.D.



Climate change affecting human populations is by no means a recent phenomenon. The geologic record of dramatically variable rainfall and the archeological record of intermittent human occupation of the Sahara over the last few hundred thousand years attest to this. Find out how climate changes naturally and why scientists have ruled out these natural mechanisms as potential causes of the warming of the last 50 years.


Science On Tap is a place where, for the price of a beverage, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place outside a traditional academic context, in the Crown Room at Schlafly Bottleworks.


Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. The standard format is as follows: 20 minutes of presentation, followed by a 7 minute break for attendees to introduce themselves to each other at the table, and then an hour of discussion. Seating is limited to the first 100 people.  No reservations accepted.
