Sunday-Afternoon-at-the-Museum: “Learning about Climate Change with Online Simulation Software: Agriculture, Food, and Equity Issues,” Dr. Dwight Krehbiel, professor emeritus, Bethel College

October 22, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This Sunday-Afternoon-At-The-Museum presentation will provide a rapid overview of a free online tool called En-ROADS to promote learning and thinking about climate change.
Dr. Krehbiel will explore how this tool can be employed to help understand the role of agriculture and of food production and consumption in climate change, as well as the countless ways in which climate change threatens health and wellbeing, especially for people who are already poor or in some way marginalized.
Dwight Krehbiel, emeritus professor of psychology at Bethel College, developed an interest in climate change modeling over a number of years of teaching a course on computing in science. In early 2020, he completed a 6-week training course in the use of En-ROADS software for workshops with diverse audiences, becoming a Climate Ambassador for Climate Interactive, a non-profit climate think-tank that created En-ROADS. Dwight has been teaching at Bethel for the past 46 years in psychology, statistics, and neuroscience.
