About the talk:

Our Challenges with Climate Change Mitigation 

Dr. Muñoz will discuss the challenges of responding to dissenting opinions (sometimes referring to our complex, global and existential climate change problem as “the Great Hoax”) and the physical, social and ethical consequences if we fail to succeed in at least partial mitigation.

About the speaker:

Dr. David R. Muñoz spent the majority of his professional career (1986-2012) as a faculty member of the Engineering Division at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM). He remains connected to CSM as an emeritus professor. His career has centered on energy after earning the MS and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering (thermal-fluid sciences) from Purdue and a BSME from the University of New Mexico. He moved to Taos in 2012, lives in an energy efficient home of his design, enjoys hiking and vegetable gardening, and has been active with Renewable Taos since 2015. David also serves as Treasurer to the 300+ year old Acequia de Los Lovatos in Ranchitos.

About the film: 

Two astronomers go on a media tour to warn humankind of a planet-killing comet hurtling toward Earth. The response from a distracted world: Meh.
