Thank you all for joining us tonight! Feel free to share your own questions for Steven and Dana here in the chat.
Brett
21:03
And if you have additional links recommendations to any of the other questions covered feel free to post here as well :)

Is there any history of reduced emissions rebounding even HIGHER once we hit a dip? I am wondering if we can at least feel good about this, or if it won't end up helping at all?

Good piece from NY Times on Covid-19 and carbon emissions: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/26/climate/nyt-climate-newsletter-coronavirus.html

thanks Brett. I asked that question in order to get some details for an op ed I have in mind. Steve’s bits were helpful, thanks.
Brett
33:34
Wonderful - thanks so much for asking it on Twitter and joining us Chris - share your op-ed when you have it written!
chriswiegard

Brett

With this one -could you both clarify Fat Tails and assessing the likelihood of any of these tipping points actually happening?
Stephen Leon

What about Palm Trees?
George Donart

A reverse of the aerosol and cooling question: Are there any short term emissions that increase heat that can be targeted?
George Donart
54:04
We have about 100 M Acres of dead White Spruce in South Central Alaska. I’m burning some of them in our wood stove right now. What is the balance between harvesting recently killed trees then burning them for heat vs letting the trees fall & release CO2 as they rot?
Tamara Staton
01:00:35
Are there better sources to burn then than trees?
Brett
01:02:18
After Tamara’s question we’re all caught up in the chat - feel free to pose any remaining questions you have here and we’ll go to the phones.

I've read that the replacement for Freon that damaged the ozone layer has turned out to be a green house gas that is perhaps a hundreds of times worse than CO2. Now they are phasing those "f gases" out, what is the good alternative? Air conditioning is an important part of society in a hotter world, especially for the elderly.

When we want to stop using gas furnaces for heating in winter an alternative is heat pumps which run on electricity and the use of refrigerants. I wonder if the hydroflourocarbons which are used are worse as they can escape.

There was a big hold up on Murkowski’s energy bill in the Senate on trying to force a phase out of f-gasses. Though the amendment had bipartisan support, it may have stopped that bill in the Senate.

Tom- this is a helpful and I believe a reputable way of visualizing this information: https://www.informationisbeautiful.net/visualizations/how-many-gigatons-of-co2/
