Using personal stories, long-term study, and decades of documentation and participation, Dr. Ben Santer, Chip Duncan, and Dr. Hernando Garzon, The Three Tenors of Climate Change, have teamed up to bring their climate story of science, art, and global health activism to audiences across the nation. Join us for a fascinating evening about receding glaciers, global climate modeling, and the long-term health consequences facing a warming world.
About the Three Tenors of Climate Change
DR. BEN SANTER, is a research scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Santer tells the story of a warming climate through computer modeling and satellite imagery accented by personal stories that begin with his participation in the 1995 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This report reached the historic conclusion that “the balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate.”
DR. HERNANDO GARZON of California’s Kaiser Permanente is considered one of the world’s leading experts on global disaster response, Dr. Garzon weaves a personal story that begins with his work navigating crises like 9/11, the Haitian earthquake, and West Africa’s Ebola crisis while addressing a noticeable shift to climate-related disasters in places such as Puerto Rico, New Orleans, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Ayeyarwady Delta region of Myanmar.
CHIP DUNCAN is an American filmmaker, author, and photographer, known principally for documentaries on history, current affairs, travel, and natural history. Since 1991, he has been annually documenting North America’s glaciers. His artistic eye brings you closer to the Juneau Ice field and the work of the Juneau Ice field Research Program (JIRP), one of the longest field studies of ice and glaciers on earth. Duncan brilliantly captures this through photographs and stories that bring this barren land to life.
