Christian is the Assistant Department Head of Geology and Geologic Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. His research focuses on reconstructing past climates of an area using records preserved in cave formations. Climate science has been a politically controversial topic recently, but its origins are divorced from such politics, and go back a few centuries. By exploring the story of the scientists and science involved in climate, a clearer picture of what we know and how we know it will be revealed.
