For the 2015 Karl Taylor Compton Lecture, MIT welcomes Professor Mario J. Molina, co-winner of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and former Institute Professor.
What’s the science behind climate change, and how can we combat a warming climate? Those are complex questions that MIT faculty are actively pursuing. In this podcast, four MIT professors— Dan Cziczo, Kerry Emanuel, Christopher Knittel, and Andrew Whittle—will discuss their climate research on areas including hurricane activity, coastal flooding, carbon dioxide, and economic policy.
Climate expert Jochem Marotzke visited MIT April 15 to deliver the 15th annual Henry W. Kendall Memorial Lecture, in which he discussed the global warming "hiatus" as well as the abilities and limitations of climate models.
