It still surprises me how seriously some people have been thinking about the proposed doomsday at the end of this year. Earlier this year I spent about 3 hours trying to convince a family friend that nothing out of the ordinary was going to happen (but I don’t think I got anywhere with that person!). For about 2 years now NASA scientists have been trying to get the same message across to people of ages and backgrounds through public lectures radio and TV but now they have gone all in and have a YouTube video that explains it all!
I was a PhD student at the Australian National University studying climate archives in deep-sea corals along Australia's eastern seaboard. This is me in Puerto Rico where I was diving scientifically and carrying around pineapples. I now have a proper job at Geoscience Australia and a not so proper job sometimes making science programs - www.kellystrzepek.com
