The latest episode of Conversations in Science has now aired on KLRNRadio. It was a requested topic and given the current escalation of the news about climate change and global warming, I can understand why.
Is all this hoopla about global warming really fake science (alternative facts) or is it real and something we should be worried about? Simple answer: it's all real, but the issues and solutions are far from simple.

When my family and friends heard the special Christmas edition of Conversations in Science, many of them asked the same question: had I been drinking too much eggnog? In listening to the episode myself, I must admit, I did sound a little crazy, but I'm not. The ideas that I mentioned in that episode really do have a scientific basis.
So in my defense, I decided to elaborate on the scientific principles mentioned in that Christmas edition for this month's episode of Conversations in Science.

With the holiday season upon us, many of us have our children sitting at home getting bored. Well, in my house, when the kids say they're bored, out comes the science experiments.
Over the years, I've managed to accumulate a variety of different experiments that you can do using common household items. I thought that it would be fun to get my children to help me share them with you, so you can share them with your children. To my surprise, the station owners of KLRNRadio were happy to support the idea and have given me their full backing. So here we go...
There is a reason that no one has ever been able to find Santa's workshop. It's because everyone has been looking in the wrong place all this time. The North Pole is really in Antarctica. I have many good reasons for my conclusions, all of which I explained in a special episode of Conversations in Science.
I figured out where Santa's Workshop is located.
