Speaker: Bernhard Stoevesandt
I'm a physicist working for German research institution in the field of wind energy for 17 years. I'm part of the coordination team of scientist for future, which was initiated this year to support social movements against climate change and the climate crisis with scientific background.
My scientific engagement has always been motivated by social issues, studying physics originally to support the movement against nuclear fission, I ended up supporting the development of alternatives. Nevertheless, as physicist I stayed interested in the physics of the climate. This is, why I started early 2018 to also read current scientific literature on climate change again to hand on the knowledge gained, as I found the situation quite shocking.
