This week on Sea Change Radio, host Alex Wise chats with Daniel Kirk-Davidoff, a climate scientist at the University of Maryland and at MDA Information Systems. First, Kirk-Davidoff tells us about how the science of predicting changes in climate and weather influences how utility companies and futures markets behave. Then, we hear about the challenges the developing world faces to keep carbon emissions low even as populations expand. Last, he talks about how different the electric grid of tomorrow may look in a few decades.
When climate change deniers find new evidence that suggests humans might not be driving climate change, that evidence cannot “disprove” anthropogenic climate change. Instead, the evidence might only slightly reduce its probability.
I was math nerd as a kid. And yes, that explains a lot about me.

Companies are facing pressure from customers, governments, investors, and other stakeholders to find climate change solutions. Your company can anticipate and respond to these pressures by developing a climate action plan. Identify opportunities such as improving supply chain efficiency and reducing fuel costs, distinguish your corporate brand from competitors, and help reach new customers.
Carbon is not our enemy. It is the basis of life, working in tandem with the water and oxygen with which we are abundantly blessed to fashion all of the beauty of nature.
Let’s nerd out. Or at least I will. You don’t have to; you can just stop reading. Your call.
Why, you ask? Because I’m fascinated by the first law of thermodynamics. And by campfires (I’m currently sitting next to one). Campfires are basically the embodiment of the first law of thermodynamics.
