UPDATE: A video of the debate is available on YouTube.

On Monday, August 15, I will engage with Texas A&M Professor Andrew Dessler in an Oxford-style debate hosted by the SoHo Forum.

We’ll debate the resolution “Climate science compels us to make large and rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions”, Dessler taking the affirmative, and I the negative.

Our separate back-to-back conversations with Joe Rogan this past winter (I here and Dessler here) show very different perspectives on climate and energy, so it should be an interesting debate.

The debate will convene at The Sheen Center, 18 Bleecker Street in Lower Manhattan, at 6:30 pm East Coast time. Tickets are available to attend in person or to participate in the live stream. A recording of the event will also be posted about a week after the debate.
