A bow-tied Bill Nye the Science Guy joined other smarty-pants experts and climate scientists on the stage at the Boulder Theater this week for a lecture on "Climate Change on Earth and Other Planets." And if the audience needed more than the smarty-pants on stage to convince them of changes to the climate, there was that distinct odor from the Flagstaff fire burning a few miles away. "The smoke in the room just adds another dimension," Nye said.
This was an amazing group of scientists sharing their knowledge and insights with passion. As an audience member, I was completely engaged. Almost every one of the presenters distilled the information in a way that was accessible by the non-scientist, but they did it without speaking down to us. (Bill Nye and David Grinspoon are rockstars at this.) While I already had a decent understanding of the fundamentals of climate change, I definitely walked away from last evening with more.
Where there's smoke, there's ire! What do you think the fires say about climate change?
