Internationally Acclaimed Climate Scientist
Andrew Weaver is one of the world’s foremost climate scientists and a leading expert on global warming. Through his work, Weaver has re-energized a new generation of discussions on climate change and sustainability, setting off what David Suzuki calls “the final alarm that galvanizes us to move onto a different energy path of renewables and efficiency.” Straight-forward, frank, and engaging, Weaver’s talks breathe urgent life into some of the most important issues of our lifetime.
Weaver was a lead author in the second, third, forth, and fith Assessment Reports with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change—the group that, with Al Gore, won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize—and is a Lansdowne Professor at the University of Victoria.
He is the author of the books, Keeping Our Cool and Generation Us; has authored or co-authored over two hundred peer-reviewed studies in climate, earth science, policy, and education journals; and was chief editor of the Journal of Climate from 2005-2009.
A recipient of numerous awards, Weaver was named a Guggenheim Fellow; a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society; a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union; a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science; a Fellow of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society; a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada; and a Member of the Order of British Columbia.
