Humans are homeotherms, maintaining constant body temperature in both cold and hot environments by virtue of shivering or sweating. In the future, however, if our atmosphere absorbs enough carbon dioxide, the temperature and humidity will exceed survivable values for many Earthlings. Wonderfest Science Envoy Yi-Chuan Lu will use climate models to identify — and explain — the terrestrial zones destined to become lethally uninhabitable by the end of this century.
Our speaker, Yi-Chuan Lu, is a physicist in the Department of Earth & Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. He is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
