JC comments: I find it extremely interesting that the American Chemical Society is hosting these two sessions on climate change. I am not sure whether the AGU, AMS, RMS would organize a session like the afternoon one.
The webinar idea is a first for me. I will be presenting my talk on Sunday afternoon from my home (need to make sure the dogs don’t bark). I think this is a tremendously good idea, assuming that the webinar proceeds without technical snafus. And it is a great way to make the proceedings of a premier scientific conference available to the public.
Kudos to Peter Bonk for organizing this.
