Steve Easterbrook presents Computing the Climate – How computer models help us understand future climate change

S_EasterbrookSteve Easterbrook is a professor of computer science at the University of Toronto. He studies how computer models of complex system behaviour can help us to make wise choices about living sustainably on planet earth. His teaching and research focusses on the dynamics of complex systems. He conducted the first detailed anthropological study of how climate scientists build and test computational simulations of the earth’s climate, and is currently investigating how weaknesses in people’s understanding of climate change lead to poor decision-making.
