Learn the basics, physical principles and observations. What does climate change mean for the country in general and the Bay Area in particular?
I am trying to help move our national conversation away from defending/denying science and to the important debate about taking action. I also try to empower people to speak confidently about the basics of climate science (if you feel confident about this already, you can gain some talking points for “disbelieving” family members at Thanksgiving).

Gunther received his Ph.D. in Energy and Resources from the University of California at Berkeley and has worked at the intersection of environmental science and policy for nearly 40 years. He currently serves as the Executive Coordinator of the Bay Area Ecosystems Climate Change Consortium, is a member of the Board of Directors of the Union of Concerned Scientists, and a scientific adviser to the Alliance for Climate Education and The Regeneration Project.
