Please help: I need place to give a talk.

Postby Fibonacci » Fri Jun 29, 2012 5:15 pm

I am a scientist and I would like to give a data-driven talk on the Playa this year about the science of climate change. The deadline to declare activities in the What Where When is coming up soon, but I can't find a good location to put it on. I am thinking all I need is a place to stand and seating/floor for ~20-30 people.

Hello and welcome to the ePlaya! Giving this a nudge to the 2012 Art & Performance board. You may care to check the Stages Seeking Artists thread (since you're looking for a venue to play host to your 'performance') or post in the Artists Seeking Stages thread to let people know what kind of performance (in this case your talk) you'd like to give. Hope that helps, good luck connecting with the right venue :)

Thanks, Lemur! Earth Guardians was a great suggestion. I will be giving my talk on Thursday from 3-5pm at the Earth Guardians' place. Here is the summary:

"Climate Change: The State of the Science

Passionate about the planet but fuzzy on the science? Learn from a scientist about the causes, effects, and mitigation strategies for climate change.

We will begin by discussing the science of long-wave radiation and the impact of gases such as carbon dioxide on Earth's radiative balance. Then we will discuss both the sources, sinks, and scales of carbon dioxide on Earth, namely power production/transportation and photosynthesis, respectively. Finally, we will discuss potential strategies for mitigating climate change through reduced CO2 emissions through renewable energies such as wind and solar and by geoengineering schemes such as geologic carbon capture and sequestration, terraforming, and oceanic iron seeding.

This class will help you to understand the scale and importance of climate change and what you as an individual can do to make a real difference."

100th Monkey Camp is designed to give thoughts and ideas a place for expression. If you want to do your talk a second time we would be glad to host it.
