“If you’re nice to him, you’ll sometimes be able to get a drink with some tens of thousands-year-old ice in it.” That’s a quote from James Bullock, the dean of the UCI School of Physical Sciences, describing a bit of the research of Professor Eric Saltzman of the UCI Department of Earth System Science. Saltzman studies, among other things, ancient ice and what it can tell us about climate change in Earth’s deep past, and joining Saltzman for this latest episode of compelling conversations are two others: Assistant Professor Paulo Brando, also of Earth System Science, who studies deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest, and Distinguished Professor Don Blake of the UCI Department of Chemistry, whose storied career includes, among many things, research into the rise of the greenhouse gas methane in our atmosphere. Join these scientists as they chat about the state of climate change science.
