Many of our contemporaries are only aware of climate change through public discourse and social media. Drawing on recent scientific papers, Jeffrey Reimer shows how the atmosphere is changing, that humans are the cause, and that there are consequences. Such consequences may be viewed in the context of Earth's historical carbon cycles, which demonstrate well what the Earth will look like unless we consider every possible means to decarbonize the atmosphere. Looking ahead, this talk also examines carbon capture and sequestration and its increasing feasibility.
