Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
At the end of July 2018 Climate Signals.org brought together three eminent climate scientists via Skype to exchange ideas on the impacts of global warming as they are now "playing out in real-time".

Mike Mann is director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University, Jennifer Francis is research professor at Rutgers University's Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, and Noah Diffenbaugh is the Kara J Foundation Professor and Kimmelman Family Senior Fellow at Stanford University. They discuss the recent heat waves around the globe, and how they connect with the changing jet stream pattern.

Prof. Michael Mann is lead author of a paper produced in 1999 Mann used advanced statistical techniques to find regional variations in a hemispherical climate reconstruction to produce a reconstruction of climate over the past 1,000 years which was dubbed the "hockey stick graph" because of its shape.

He is the author of more than 200 peer-reviewed and edited publications, numerous op-eds and commentaries, and four books including: Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change and The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial is Threatening our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy.

Prof. Jennifer Francis' research interests are the connections between rapid Arctic warming and weather patterns in mid-latitudes, particularly extreme weather events, causes and impacts of Arctic sea-ice loss and the linkages to accelerated melt of the Greenland ice sheet.

Prof. Noah Diffenbaugh is Kara J Foundation Professor at Stanford University. He studies and writes about the climate system, including the processes by which climate change could impact agriculture, water resources, and human health. Dr. Diffenbaugh is currently Editor-in-Chief of the peer-review journal Geophysical Research Letters.
