Episode #134: Python in Climate Science

Published Thurs, Oct 19, 2017, recorded Mon, Oct 16, 2017.


What is the biggest challenge facing human civilization right now? Fake news, poverty, hunger? Yes, all of those are huge problems right now. Well, if climate change kicks in, you can bet it will amplify these problems and more. That's why it's critical that we get answers and fundamental models to help understand where we are, where we are going, and how we can improve things.

On this episode, you'll meet Dr. Damien Irving. He's a climate science researcher using Python to understand what the climate models are telling us.
