Help Paul Go to COP25/UN Climate Conference

Paul Beckwith, well-known climate system scientist/physicist/engineer and educator, will be attending the UN Climate Change Conference from December 2 to December 13, 2019, in Madrid, Spain. The conference will feature the 25th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). His travel expenses will be out-of-pocket.

Based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Paul is a respected creator of entertaining and comprehensible videos, usually pertaining to climate system science, abrupt climate change, meteorology, oceanography and Earth Sciences. He also occasionally teaches at the University of Ottawa and is often asked by concerned citizens and government officials to speak at conferences and events, and has participated in numerous panel discussions. He has often been interviewed as a guest on various radio and podcast programs, and participated in the climate march on September 27 in Ottawa, Canada.

During his time at COP 25, Paul will have the opportunity to participate in press conferences, provide climate reports, and meet with other climate scientists and activists, such as Greta Thunberg (Youth Swedish Climate Activist), Dr. James Hansen (Ex-Nasa scientist/Climate Science, Awareness and Solutions Program at Columbia University), Dr. Peter Wadhams (Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group) and Dr. Peter Carter (Founder of the Climate Emergency Institute and IPCC Expert Reviewer).

Paul's participation in COP 25 will undoubtably help spread public awareness and understanding regarding climate change. The climate crisis has already had a huge impact on particular regions and nations, and is a global emergency. Let us help Paul in his mission to raise awareness regarding the global climate emergency.

Paul's expenses will include transportation/airfare from Ottawa, Canada, to Madrid, Spain, as well as meals and transportation while in Madrid. He would be most grateful for every single donation.
