The Interview between Professor Goodman and Dan Kamen was particularly interesting due to its mulit-layered nature. I initially thought that I was in for a climate change talk which vouched for the accuracy of most climate change models and that the world is doomed. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of interesting and up-to date topics which were addressed. The most surprising piece of information I learned was the importance of communication through social media in regards to climate change models. On the one hand, I thought Mr. Kamen's point in relation to feelings of privacy nowadays in contrast to a time prior to social media was also incredibly interesting. Deducing that our standards of privacy are much lower nowadays. However, I thought that his argument on almost everyone having access to social media is flawed. Additionally, the quantification of climate change is something which always strikes people more heavily than simply giving them a doomsday timeframe as the late 20X0's appear much further than it is in reality.
If I were to interview Mr. Kamen, I would likely have asked him how social media could help refine the accuracy of climate change models, while questioning what medium of communication could be used in order to spread climate change efforts or report data. I would also like to ask whether the data collection via social media could be helpful.

I find your point fascinating that the privacy barrier to social media has allowed the distribution of models of climate change to be more widespread! I think there is an objective area for a doomsday timeframe though, and it is the only way we can really make people sensitive to the effects of climate change in such a sensationalized platform.
