During the AGU Fall Meeting I had the honor of working with Peter Sinclair of Climate Denial Crock of the Week and John Cook of Skeptical Science, interviewing an amazing line-up of scientists and science communicators. I’m floored by who we interviewed and could have a chat with. Everyone brought their A game which gave us some incredible footage.
Richard Alley – Communicating Science With Anything That Works
Richard Alley is an American geologist and Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences at Pennsylvania State University. Well respected in his field and a great science communicator. Every time he speaks you know he enjoys his work and loves to share his love for it.
This has made him a true asset during hearings with his good and fun to listen explanations. One of the more famous moments was Alley explaining Milankovitch cycles to Dana Rohrbacher: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2m9SNzxJJA
In this clip Alley looks back at this moment and why he communicates the science in the way that he does.
