Earth & Space Sciences Spring Lecture Series 2012


Human activities, especially emissions of heat-trapping carbon dioxide gas, are causing the climate to rapidly warm. Join Scott Mandia as he shows how New York is already being impacted by global warming and what the expected further warming means for residents of our home state. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the choices we can make now to minimize future impacts.

Topics to be discussed:

  1. Evidence that the global climate is warming
  2. Evidence that humans are causing this warming
  3. The impact of this warming on New Yorkers
  4. Solutions to the problem than can also save you $$$

The talk is open to the general public but seating is limited (about 125 seats) so arrive early.
