Birmingham Unitarian Church, 38651 Woodward Ave. Bloomfield Hills. MI
Peter Sinclair is a videographer and communicator who runs the “Climate Denial Crock of the Week” website at http://climatecrocks.com/. Based in Midland, MI, Peter has been questioning, learning from, and getting to know top climate scientists since 2007. He has participated in scientific conferences as well as data gathering expeditions in extreme environments.
In June 2013 Mr. Sinclair traveled to the Greenland Ice Sheet with activist Bill Mckibben, leading Glaciologist Dr. Jason Box and a team of scientists to gather samples and view climate change up close, at Global Warming ground zero. He is a lifelong Michigan resident and a graduate of the University of Michigan.
At this meeting, Peter will outline the latest science findings of high level experts, consider the impacts on the Great Lakes region, and look at the solutions that are already at hand. The meeting is free and open to the public. You need not be a Sierra Club member to attend. Light refreshments will be served at 6:30. The formal meeting begins at 7:00 with announcements, followed by the speaker’s presentation. There will be a discussion following the presentation.
His witty, informative YouTube videos have become must-viewing and sharing for scientists, students, journalists, and citizens who are concerned about the science of global climate change, and the need to better communicate it. His original series, “Climate Denial Crock of the Week,” crushes disinformation on the Internet, and a second series, “This is Not Cool,” has been launched through the Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media.
