Climate Change: Where We Are Now & Where We Are Going
Join professor James White at the Rifle Branch Library at 7:00 pm on Thursday, August 16th for a public review of how the human race affects Earth's climate system. We humans are having larger and larger impacts on the planet as we grow in numbers, and as countries such as China, India and Brazil industrialize and require more resources. We will explore some of those impacts, with an emphasis on climate, viewing the issues not only as science issues, but as a social and ethical issues as well. We will focus on two key questions: what is our impact? And what is our responsibility? We will wrap up with a look at how your CU is contributing to sustainability research and education.
