Talk is cheap. Actually it’s free.

Education is my activism. There are never fees because this is how I choose to give back.

It’s a beautiful day at the beach.
But in the distance you see a wave forming
…and it’s titanic!

You’ve been studying waves your whole life. You know this big one is unprecedented and unstoppable — because you predicted it. Now it is about to hit the beach.

But people all around you still have their backs to the ocean.

You signal, you yell, you jump up and down. Why don’t they turn around and see what’s coming?

This is the climate-change nightmare scientists like me can’t wake up from. After decades of advising, planning and publishing, I finally know how to get people’s attention.

It takes more than yelling and hand waving. It means speaking directly to people, making the science understandable and meaningful while respecting personal values. The education they receive at this very moment will determine the story of us and the legacy we leave generations to come.

There’s much we can do. Let’s face it together.

WHAT’S IN A CLIMATE TALK?

WHAT’S IN A
CLIMATE TALK?

The high notes

Andy’s half- or full-hour talks explain why every scientific academy in the world concludes that human emissions of greenhouse gases are altering the climate.

It’s an honest take on what changes are happening now and what can be expected in the future. His delivery is nonpartisan and nonpolitical.

He uses engaging illustrations, personal anecdotes and rich insights to help the average citizen navigate the daily onslaught of information and fake news.

His presentation style is crisp, animated and revealing. And, he’ll happily field your questions at the end.

In the last several years Andy’s made over 60 presentations to organizations in the Bay Area including neighborhood groups, The Commonwealth Club, colleges and businesses.

What Andy’s audiences say

I feared the subject would be simply depressing and overwhelming. But Andy delivered it in a way that was actually empowering. Hit me like a thunderbolt.

Lauren Kahn
Attendee, Claremont Country Club

If you want to be a good citizen and find out what kind of world we want to leave the next generations, you have to hear this talk.

Peter Carson
Hillhouse Club

Andy is a trustworthy and compassionate messenger who provides the honest and clear information we are all seeking about climate change.

Our members were comfortable asking a breadth of questions, creating the rich exchange that signifies a successful presentation.

Several members were so engaged by what they learned that they asked Andy to speak to other groups in which they participate.

Mary D’Elia
Albany Rotary Club

Many scientists have vast knowledge and experience, but I’ve seen few who can engage an audience like Andy.

His polished presentation not only explains the basics of climate science in accessible terms, but also is full of information regarding how fast changes are happening, both globally and locally. Many club members came up to me afterwards to comment on the quality of the program, which was one of the best we’ve had this year.
