    Climate Change & COVID-19 | How To Refine Your Understanding Of Science & The Environment

    Climate Change & COVID-19 | How To Refine Your Understanding Of Science & The Environment

    Today, we sit down with William Sargent, a NOVA consultant and the winner of the Boston Globe's Winship Award. He joins us in this episode to discuss his work as a renowned author and scientist covering subjects such as marine biology, fishing, diving, underwater photography, global warming, and more.
    William has written a whopping 27 books about science and the environment. These include World on Edge: Covid-19, Climate Change, Ukraine and Solutions, and Storm Surge: A Coastal Village Battles the Rising Atlantic. His distinct insight is informed by years of research and personal interaction with the issues he tackles…
    In this episode, you will learn about:
    What a scientific author does. How severe storms can impact beaches, and how they compare to sea level rise. Insights from journalists regarding the current war in Ukraine. The potential origins of COVID-19. William is determined to bridge the gap between science and storytelling – and the success he has achieved is fascinating. Wondering how his work has contributed to scientific narratives around the world? Tune in now!

    The Truth About Climate Change: What Does The Science Say?

    The Truth About Climate Change: What Does The Science Say?

    Today we connect with Judith Curry to discuss various climate change issues. As a renowned climatologist and former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Judith’s research covers a range of topics; but her views on climate change are not necessarily considered mainstream…
    Over the years, Judith has published over a hundred scientific papers and co-edited several major works. While she accepts that the planet is warming, she is skeptical about whether or not it is human-generated – and asserts that trying to reduce emissions may be pointless.
    So what is climate change being caused by, and is the mainstream narrative accurate? Judith sits down to address this and much more!
    In this episode, we cover:
    Whether or not the mainstream climate narrative is valid. How the issue of natural climate change has been trivialized.  Why rapidly turning away from fossil fuels is dangerous. The difference between electric and gas vehicles.  To find out more about Judith and her work, click here now!

    Changes In Glaciers & Ice: How Does This Impact Our Climate System?

    Changes In Glaciers & Ice: How Does This Impact Our Climate System?

    Ice is an important facet of Earth’s climate system. Since ice affects our climate and sea levels, understanding the way ice sheets develop and change over time helps us better predict the future of our planet. So, what are researchers finding? Dr. Alexander Robel joins the podcast to enlighten us…
    Dr. Robel is an Assistant Professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech University, and serves as the head of the Ice and Climate research group. By studying the causes of ice sheet change, Dr. Robel is on a mission to develop conceptual, mathematical, and computational tools to predict future changes..
    In this episode, we talk about:
    What happens when glaciers melt. Where glaciers and ice sheets tend to form, and why they melt.  What “sea ice” is, and where it forms.  How computer models are used in Dr. Robel’s research.   Want to learn more about Dr. Robel and his research? Click here now!

    A Fresh Take On Climate Science: Challenging The Mainstream Narrative With Physicist William Happer

    A Fresh Take On Climate Science: Challenging The Mainstream Narrative With Physicist William Happer

    Joining us today to address issues surrounding climate science is William Happer. William is the Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics, Emeritus, at Princeton University.  He is also a long-term member of the JASON advisory group, where he played an integral role in the development of adaptive optics.
    As a pioneer in the world of physics, William has focused his research on atomic physics, optics, and spectroscopy.
    This greatly informs his approach to topics such as climate change – giving him the scientific tools necessary to disprove any inaccurate claims being made by politicians and scientists alike…
    Join the discussion now to learn more about:
    How politics can impact climate science. What the carbon dioxide levels are today versus 500 million years ago. The potential consequences of banning fossil fuels. The real reason why storm damages are more severe. While this is certainly a dividing issue, making your mind up for yourself is important. Tune in to learn about this subject from an alternative perspective!

    Examining How Climate Change Is Impacting Humanity With Andrew Dessler

    Examining How Climate Change Is Impacting Humanity With Andrew Dessler

    Joining us in this episode to discuss climate science is Andrew Dessler. Andrew is the Director of the Texas Center for Climate Studies. He is also a Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and holder of the Reta A. Haynes Chair in Geoscience at Texas A&M University.
    Andrew wants to know how climate change is going to affect humans in the future. In order to unpack this area of interest, he spends his time researching topics such as climate change policy, climate impacts, atmospheric chemistry, and global climate physics.
    Tune in now to uncover:
    The research tools Andrew is using to predict the future impacts of climate change. What we can do to mitigate future climate challenges. One way the U.S. could largely transition away from fossil fuels. How electricity usage is being affected by climate change. So, what will the future hold for humans as the climate continues to transform? What can we do to prepare for a warmer future? Andrew answers these questions and others like them in this insightful conversation about climate change!

    The Causes of Climate Change, Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and how Solar Radiation Effects Temperature with Patrick Frank

    The Causes of Climate Change, Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and how Solar Radiation Effects Temperature with Patrick Frank

    Are the factors affecting air temperature what we previously thought? Based on physical evidence, there may be different culprits at hand. Listen in to learn:
    Major projections that may be filled with error The most significant factors affecting air temperature What major models are based on Patrick Frank, Scientific Affiliate at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, shares his experience researching climate change, the real reasons behind it, and the possible consequences.
    In recent years, the story of climate change has been centered on greenhouse gasses and a few other key factors. However, these factors may be based on errored evidence.
    Even with extensive modeled evidence and published studies, the evidence may be more akin to statistics than science. Due to this, the real causes and effects of climate change and rising air temperature may vary from what we have been told.

easy to see why it’s called “Finding Genius”

The host has some excellent guests, and the conversations are super engaging. The topics vary widely, making it all the more impressive that Richard is able to keep up and ask intriguing questions for guest response. Richard engages insightful conversations across the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, business, etc.

I served as a guest and was pleased with the conversation. I’m certainly not a genius, but other guests can make that claim. Follow this podcast! You won’t be disappointed.
