PhD Student, Department of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University
Peter Jacobs is a Ph.D. student and Presidential Scholar at George Mason University in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy. His research focuses on climate-ocean interactions and their impacts on marine ecosystems in the past, present, and future. He holds an M.Sc. from the same department, with a concentration is Earth Surface Processes and Environmental Geochemistry. In addition to his primary academic research, Peter is also interested in the science of how people respond to the issue of climate change- from communications, psychological, and sociological perspectives. This has led to his participation in various projects relating to the scientific consensus on man-made global warming, principally with volunteers from the Skeptical Science team, as well as the Center for Climate Change Communication (C4) at George Mason.
