Lifelong Learning Lecture: Natural and Human Causes of Climate Change: What Scientists Know and How They Know It

Join us on Thursday, September 28, 6-7 pm in the McCue Auditorium as Dr. James Haynes discusses the impact of natural forces and modern human civilization on the earth's climate.

For eons, six slowly, often intermittently acting natural forces have changed the Earth's temperature within a range of +7 F, leading to climate swings from ice ages to planet-wide tropical conditions. Now a seventh rapidly acting force is changing climate--modern human civilization. What evidences of climate change are observed today, what is likely to happen to our children and generations beyond as a result of human activity in the recent past and today? What can we do to minimize the impacts of the changes to come?

This lecture is presented by Dr. James Haynes, Interim Provost and Professor of Environmental Science & Ecology. All interested community members, faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend this Lifelong Learning Community Lecture Series taking place on Thursday, September 28, from 6 to 7 pm in the McCue Auditorium of the Liberal Arts Building. The event is also being live-streamed to the MetroCenter's Golden Eagle room.
