Global warming in three easy lessons (and one difficult one)

Speaker: Dr Marty Ross (itinerant mathematician)
Date & Time: 12:00–1:00 pm, Friday 22 November 2013

What is there to say about global warming? Way too much!
Official reports run to thousands of pages and the nay-sayers are just as busy.

What is a responsible citizen to do?
Marty will attempt to provide you with a simple guide to the mountains of information and misinformation.

About the speaker

Marty Ross is a mathematical nomad. At the age of 2, he ran away from America to join the circus. After some controversy involving an elephant, he returned to America to do his PhD in mathematics at Stanford University. Eventually, he arrived back in Australia, where he has wandered the mathematical world, aimless but happy.
