Seminars

Our seminars are open to all personnel at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and offer a variety of "bigger picture" viewpoints on climate change. They are designed to make people think, be accessible to a wide audience, and to touch upon important climate issues from the point of view of science, industry, economics, communication and other sectors. Our seminar speakers come from a variety of institutes, non-profits or industries.
