June 8: Virtual Mountain Minds Monday - Climate Change and How to Follow Through


Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a local network of entrepreneurs and professionals, is pleased to host Dr. John Henry Beyer, who will present on Climate Change: its causes, the severity, and how to help mitigate the impact of climate change. Beyer will present during the June 8th virtual Mountain Minds Monday via live stream using the Tahoe Silicon Mountain YouTube Channel.

Beyer will explain the science behind global warming and climate change in a way that is engaging and understandable. By representing large datasets visually, explaining complex concepts in accessible language, and drawing on psychologists’ research on reactions to disturbing information, Beyer will offer us a path forward under what might otherwise feel like insurmountable challenges.

Beyer received his Ph.D. in Geophysics from UC Berkeley, which led to a management career in geophysical exploration of geothermal energy sources for power generation. Beyer has managed geothermal exploration projects in Japan, Indonesia, and the Azores.

More recently Beyer has been involved in research management, developing technologies to mitigate climate change. At the California Energy Commission Beyer managed research focused on increasing efficiency and reducing emissions from electricity generation systems. At Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory he managed research on the geologic storage of carbon dioxide to reduce the carbon dioxide build up in the atmosphere.
