Event Description:
Sustainable Saratoga, The Environmental Studies and Sciences Program at Skidmore College, and the Saratoga Performing Arts Center invite you to join us for the next Science on Tap presentation. We have a new location in 2019 – The Parting Glass! Join us for informal talks and discussions led by regional scientists and researchers. Monthly talks will address a diverse array of contemporary scientific research topics and debates. Kristofer Covey, from Skidmore’s Environmental Studies and Sciences Program and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, will be our speaker on January 29 at The Parting Glass. Kris will talk about “Three trillion and counting: What mapping global tree density taught us about science and the popular imagination.” “In 2015 our research team developed a map of global tree density. With it came the first robust estimate of the number of trees on earth, more than 3 trillion. We’ll discuss our process, findings, and the conversation that ensued in the popular media. What can this project tell us about the Earth system, the pursuit of science, and the way society interacts with scientific knowledge? And, what’s left to count?” Admission is free and all ages are welcome. Plan to arrive by 6 PM to get settled so the talk can start promptly at 6:30.
