For many of us scientists, travel's the biggest part of our carbon footprint. We're trying to break the mold but, like Katie said, "I'm about to reply to a speaking request asking if I can do it virtually...not sure why this feels so scary." Not this time, tho -- they said YES!
I've successfully transitioned about 3/4 of the talks I give to virtual, and doubled the number of talks that way too! I'm not the most tech-savvy person but here are some of my tips on basic equipment that will elevate a video talk from poor to good -> katharinehayhoe.com/wp2016/resourc…
My inspiration came first, from stepping on the carbon scales + realising my travel ems dwarfed every other aspect of my life; and second, from participating in a study that found a video talk had just as much influence on student's opinions as a live talk tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.54…
However, as many of my colleagues including @coralsncaves have noted, virtual talks are still not the norm in our community and we still get a lot of "no"s. When that happens, I recommend someone local/regional instead, and ask that if they ever change their mind pls let me know.
