Professor Rood Interviewed On Climate Change on Calgary Today Radio Program

Climate & Space professor Richard Rood was interviewed earlier this week on the subject of climate change for the Calgary Today program on CHQR AM 770. Professor Rood and program host Angela Kokott talked about his recent article published in The Conversation in which he discusses the potential benefits of stopping greenhouse gas emissions immediately.

The article, If we stopped emitting greenhouse gases right now, would we stop climate change? explores the immediate and long-term impact of such an action. 

From the article:

"Earth’s climate is changing rapidly. We know this from billions of observations, documented in thousands of journal papers and texts and summarized every few years by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The primary cause of that change is the release of carbon dioxide from burning coal, oil and natural gas."
