Skeptics in the Pub January – Climate Change Madness

Climate Change Madness (There is method in it) – A talk by Trevor Sloughter

Climate science is one of the most diverse fields of research spanning from statistical physics of air molecules to geology and geochemistry of million year old rock formations. The aim of this talk is to illuminate through discussion some of how the small scale is done (say, measuring an air bubble in an ice core), how it’s built up into the large scale (through statistics, modelling, and meta-analysis), and some of the history that has led to the present consensus.

Trevor Sloughter is a research associate at Oxford’s Department of Zoology. He’s been working in ecological modelling since his Master’s in Geosciences out of a peculiar fascination with epistemology and philosophy of science.

Who are we? – Skeptics in the Pub is a place for inquisitive people of all ages to meet and converse in the High Wycombe area.

Skeptics are people who yearn to discover the truth behind extraordinary claims that people or groups may make, this can be in areas of alternative therapies, the paranormal, religion and faith, the afterlife and many other areas of life. We we often end up talking about superstition, science, religious fundamentalism, health, censorship and conspiracy theory

We make no claims to balance, and actively promote science, freedom of expression and secular humanism..

You are welcome to come along and just sit and listen to others, or if you are braver get stuck right in with conversation and views!
