Welcome

Hello!

Isn’t Earth beautiful?

Here’s the goals for this website:

  • Make some of the science of climate change more accessible.
  • Connect with people about choices we can make to live more sustainably.

My name’s Patricia Tavormina and I’m a scientist, originally a biologist who morphed into a geneticist of everything from bacteria to human beings. More recently ‘home’ was Planetary Science at Caltech, where we studied biological methane cycling, or according to my brother-in-law, ‘Earth farts.’ I sometimes teach in the community colleges and in the Cal State system.┬áMost recently, I’m writing a few stories.
