Climate Voices Science Speakers Network

What we do.

The Climate Voices network brings non-partisan conversations about the research findings of the majority of climate scientists to citizens across the United States and Puerto Rico. Scientists and other experts meet with neighbors and community organizations to initiate discussions about the local effects of a changing climate and possible ways to address impacts. Use the map to find a speaker near you and invite them to local meetings. Thank you for allowing Climate Voices to be part of your community!

How it Works


1Search the database to find a speaker

The database is searchable by last name, geographic location, expertise, and languages spoken. Read through expert profiles to find the right person for your group.


2 Contact a Scientist

Contact the speaker directly by clicking on the contact tab at the end of their profile and issuing them an invitation. They will receive an email from you and should respond directly to you within 48 hours. (If you do not hear back within that time, feel free to contact our staff for assistance.)


3Logistics

Once you have connected, discuss logistics such as time, location, type (service organization, faith-based, etc.) and size of group being assembled. If you have special requests of the expert, such as information on a particular aspect of climate science or climate change, be sure to let them know. And remind them that you are expecting a conversation, not a technical talk. Discuss any equipment needs if they would like to give a brief presentation to set the context for discussion at your meeting.


4Follow up

If you would like to continue or expand the discussion beyond the allotted meeting time, do not hesitate to invite the expert to return for another visit. You may also contact other Climate Voices experts in your area for additional conversations.

Webinar: "Geoengineering: What is it and what technologies are being explored?" panel presentation Learn more

From last week’s release of the “Climate Intervention: Reflecting Sunglight to Cool Earth” by the National Research Council to recent articles in major mainstream news sources, climate intervention, or geoengineering, is a topic in which the public has increasing interest.

How prepared are you to answer questions about geoengineering in your public speaking engagements?

To support our Climate Voices participants, we will offer a two-part geoengineering webinar series and a geoengineering slide deck in March 2015, through the support of the National Science Foundation.

We invite you to participate in both live webinar events: “Geoengineering: What is it and what technologies are being explored?” and “Geoengineering: What are the potential geopolitical and ethical issues?” The webinars will also be recorded and accessible from our website.

Webinar 1: “Geoengineering: What is it and what technologies are being explored?” Panel Presentation

Mar 04, 2015 at 1:00 PM EST.

This webinar panel presentation will cover the basics of climate intervention, or geoengineering, including two types of technologies that are being proposed. Dr. Phillip Rasch from the Pacific Northwest National Library will present the basis of marine-cloud brightening and Dr. Simone Tilmes from the National Center for Atmospheric Research will present stratospheric aerosol loading. They will discuss how we might proceed with research for each area, what these experiments might tell us, and share some of the things we should be aware of as we consider these technologies. We will also discuss the recent “Climate Intervention: Reflecting Sunlight to Cool Earth” report released by the National Academies Press in February 2015.
