David Goodrich - A Hole in the Wind: A Climate Scientist's Bicycle Journey Across the United States

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 25, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Goodrich, former Director of the United Nations Global Climate Observing System in Geneva, retired as head of NOAA's Climate Observations and Monitoring Program. But his work was not finished. Puzzled by Americans’ dismissive attitudes to climate change, he set off on a cross-country bicycle trip to try to understand and rectify the denial. Over the course of 4,200 miles, from Delaware to Oregon, Goodrich discussed environmental issues with everyone from schoolchildren to scientists to ordinary citizens. If he left people more informed about climate change, he also came away enlightened himself, discovering why the issue is so complicated for many of us.
