It is one of the most abundant elements in the cosmos. It travels the universe and can be seen on the edge of our galaxy and in the hearts of dying stars. It forges planets, unravels the mysteries of creation and time, and without it, humanity would cease to exist. Join us as we explore the past, present, and future impact of carbon on planet Earth.
About the Speaker: Dr. A. Scott Denning, CSU
A. Scott Denning is a climate scientist and professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University, whose faculty he joined in 1998. He is known for his research into atmosphere-biosphere interactions and atmospheric carbon dioxide. He firmly supports action to avoid dangerous climate change and has said that the science behind it is "settled". He has also argued that, if no action is taken on the matter, global warming could cause the climate of Colorado to resemble the current climate of its neighbors to the south, such as southern New Mexico, Texas and Mexico.
