Following the "Ask a Climate Scientist" event, climate change history takes center stage as Mike Farrell of TV’s M*A*S*H fame plays scientist Dr. David Keeling in a riveting and often amusing one person play by George Shea about the life and work of the scientist who was the first to successfully measure CO2 in Earth’s atmosphere. "Keeling’s great contribution was that he gave the world its first early warnings of the ominously dangerous rise in CO2 levels," notes Farrell. "Sadly," says Farrell, "those warnings have up until now largely gone unheeded. That’s the reason we’re doing this show. We think it offers a simple and entertaining way to explain global warming to a general audience. It’s badly needed."

"Ask a Climate Scientist" allows international citizens to join a live broadcast about climate change. Caltech believes this event will educate and inspire people to join the global climate change movement and help catalyze a national conversation about the climate crisis.
