I have been challenged to think about how I can best approach the issue of climate change.
Some of the things I enjoy most—wilderness areas, outdoor recreation, and the opportunity to escape the business of civilization—are threatened. During my time at CU, I have been challenged to think about how I can best approach the issue of climate change to protect the areas I love: using green technology, consuming less resources, and reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.
What I have come to realize is that none of these are possible without economic resources and informed research. This is why I decided to pursue a research career—to make green technology or carbon capture more economically competitive.
Jason Chalmers partnered with Dr. Jennifer Kay in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) in Summer 2019 to investigate the linearity of cloud feedbacks in idealized climate models.
