Thank you for delivering an eye-opening lecture and presentation to our students.
Their feedback has been outstanding which confirms our belief that a little knowledge is inspirational. You never know how many people you have permanently influenced.

photoWith broadcast, in print and on the web, journalists reach millions of people. But just as "retail politics" has its place even as presidential candidates spend millions on mass media product, public speaking is still an effective way to engage the public on important topics like climate change. Dan speaks regularly on the topics of his reporting, including the state of the world's biodiversity and the pressing threat of global warming. He also speaks to journalism students about science and multimedia journalism and to scientists about their relationship with the press.
