Nir Shaviv Vortrag in Calgary am 2. Juni 2015

A Friends of Science Special Event Featuring Dr. Nir Shaviv, Astrophysicist
“Solar forcing and our understanding of past and future climate change”

Dr. Shaviv will explain and demonstrate that the sun is an important climate driver but it is missing from the standard climate analyses. As a consequence, the standard (i.e. IPCC) models have a much higher climate sensitivity than the real Earth has, such that future climate response to anthropogenic forcing will be “much more benign” than what alarmists claim. Dr. Shaviv’s presentation will be of interest to the general public as well as those in the sciences.

Dr. Shaviv, is presently on sabbatical as an IBM Einstein Fellow in the field of astrophysics at Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study. His home institution is The Hebrew University of Jerusalem where he is a full professor of physics in the Racah Institute of Physics.

Event includes a ~30 min presentation with Q & A. Event opens with light appetizers during the mix ‘n mingle 5:45-6:30pm followed by opening messages. Dr. Shaviv’s presentation starts at 7:00pm. Cash bar will be open during a short intermission followed by Q & A. Seating will be tables of 8.
