Climate presentations

Dr. Saxe has delivered hundreds of highly praised public presentations on climate, energy, and environment. Some are available on YouTube. See testimonials here.

A typical comment: Your presentation was outstanding, and provoked much conversation at the break. Very interesting, and your slide deck was fantastic. You could hear a pin drop.

The webinar explaining each of my ECO reports is also available on my YouTube channel.
