PASADENA, Calif. - April 22, 2014 - PRLog -- PASADENA, CA – (April 22, 2014) – This Earth Day, climate scientists Josh Fisher and David Crisp from JPL/NASA will host an "Ask a Climate Scientist" live broadcast on April 22nd, 6:00pm – 7:45pm PST. This special Earth Day broadcast streaming live on Ustream allows citizens and climate scientists from all over the planet to participate in an international climate change discussion highlighting the most recent, cutting-edge developments in climate change research.

This channel will be open and unrestricted on April 22, 2014 at 6:00pm - 7:45pm PST. Comments and questions can also be Tweeted to #CaltechCO2. The "Ask a Climate Scientist" broadcast is produced by Caltech, a world-renowned, pioneering research and education institution dedicated to advancing science and engineering.

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.
