Presentations

Dr. Saxe has delivered hundreds of highly praised public presentations on climate, energy, and environment. 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 available by clicking on the individual report pages, accessible from the Reports page.
