“For human beings to change the climate of the planet is a monstrously enormous undertaking. I haven’t seen convincing evidence of it.”

—Professor of Computer Science David Gelernter ’76, ’77MA, quoted in the January 25 Yale Daily News. Gelernter met with President-elect Trump in January and was rumored to be a possible choice for science adviser to the president. He specializes in parallel computing, which enables computers to run calculations or processes simultaneously, saving time and energy.
