“The Quantum Physics of Climate Change” by Brad Marston, Brown University

Quantum physics plays a crucial role in determining the climate of the Earth and of other planets. Richard Feynman’s famous double slit experiment gives us the key to understanding climate and how it is changing. Brad Marston will use this physics to present a picture of what will happen to the Earth as the concentration of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide continue to increase in our atmosphere. Live simulations will illustrate the basic features of weather and climate. Brad will also discuss ways that research in the Aspen area is contributing to a better understanding of climate change.
