If you could ask a climate scientist one question, what would it be?

Here’s our last question for our run of The Great Immensity at Kansas City Repertory Theatre! We have gotten to ask climate scientists a lot of different questions over the last few years. We want to know what YOU would ask a climate scientist if you got in the room with one.

And just in case your question is, Who’s a climate scientist, here’s an answer for you in the form of a hilarious music video.

    You hear sometimes that there is a tipping point with global warming—that once we reach a certain point, there’s no going back. What is that point, and what happens when we get there?

    Wow, that’s a great question! I would probably want to know more about how climate models are put together. I know it’s a process that takes can take years and requires a lot of data analysis, but I’d love to know more about how those predictions of the future get put together.

    I have read concerning ocean coccoliths, that by current rates of increasing ocean acidification that a die-off of these creatures could occur by 2100 or sooner because the predicted level of pH at that time would cause their shells to dissolve based upon testing at the predicted pH level. If a die off of these creatures were to occur what would the effect be on the remaining sea life? Is this a cause for a mass die-off in and of itself?
    Thank you
