We aren't exactly meteorology fanatics. The closest we get to weather-related science is browsing through the usually sunny icons of our iPhone forecast. Sunny image = happy. Biologist and nature writer Bill Streever is a little (read: way) more advanced in weather matters -- specifically, why we like that little sunny indicator so much.
Streever visits ASU Art Museum to discuss what draws people to heat in his lecture "Why Do We Love Hot Places?" He'll talk about much-misunderstood thermal energy and his own exploits chronicled in his book Heat: Adventures in the World's Fiery Places.
