"Climate: the past is the key to the future"
Ollie Laub '21, (PhD Candidate) Utah State University
Human activities have been the main driver of current climate change, primarily due to the release of large quantities of carbon into the atmosphere. In this lecture, I will summarize our modern climate and how it compares to climate change in the geologic past. I will cover how climate scientists use the physical characteristics of the geologic record as proxies to interpret past climate change. While it is said that the present is the key to the past, it is also true that the past can be the key to the future. By the end of the lecture, students will be able to communicate how paleoclimate archives can be used to understand the human impact on future climate. In the end I will highlight how this information can be used to inform policymakers on their decisions.
