Our pursuit of a better life, enabled by the discovery of fire, agriculture, and fossil fuels, gave us modern civilization. It also gave us climate change. We can reverse climate change and improve the quality of life on earth using proven technologies and practices – all of which can be brought to scale by 2040 – that reduce CO2 emissions to zero and remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Our Final Session 2019 addresses one of Europe's most critical and strategic challenges for the 21st Century - how to grow a domestic software industry that can compete globally with the USA and China. Our panel of distinguished speakers - founders, investors, scientists and policy-makers - will address the current state of Continental Europe's software sector in selected countries and regions, and then move to a wide-ranging discussion and debate about the path forward for Europe in software and data.

Preventing dangerous climate change is an “area under the curve” problem, as total emissions over time must not exceed a trillion tons of carbon. The imperative, then, is focusing on strategies that offer speed and scale in carbon reduction. Ten policies, applied to 20 countries, can land us at a reasonable climate future.

Large populations across the western United States depend on seasonal snowmelt derived from mountainous regions for the majority of their water resources. Despite advances in the remote sensing of snow, estimating the amount of water stored in the snowpack, its distribution, and how it is changing over mountainous regions remains a significant challenge for hydrologic and water resources applications.

Please consider joining us for our winter quarter public stargazing event this coming Saturday, February 23, at Lake Lagunita on the Stanford University campus. We'll be in the dry lake bed, downhill from the bonfire pit. The event will take place between 7:30 PM - 10:30 PM; feel free to stay for as little or as long as you'd like. We hope to have great views of Mars and Uranus, as well as a multitude of deep-sky objects including nebulae, globular clusters, double stars, galaxies, and more!
