Green Visions: the 12 words that changed the world

Ben-Santer-LNSM.jpg

Dr. Ben Santer's life changed that day he got a phone call from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), asking him to be the lead author of a chapter on the causes of climate change for the 1995 Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The world changed the day these words were published: “the balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate.”

Dr. Ben Santer will be one of the speakers at a virtual breakfast called "Voices to Power," hosted by Climate Generation on April 22, Earth Day.

You can read Dr. Santer's Washington Post piece here: "I’m a climate scientist. And I’m not letting trickle-down ignorance win." (Washington Post; July 5, 2017)

And even though the video of his Late Night With Seth Meyers  appearance has been taken down, you can listen to the interview in podcast form.  Dr. Santer's interview begins at 16:39 in and runs until 27:09.

And you can also learn more about the Fingerprints of Climate Change in this presentation.
