Taplin Lecture: Climate Change: A Scientist's Perspective, Ralph Cicerone(More about event)
Taplin Lecture -- Speaker: Dr. Ralph Cicerone, President, National Academy of Sciences -- Earth's climate is changing, as can be seen from measurements of rising air and water temperatures, decreasing amounts of polar ice and rising sea levels worldwide over the past three decades or so. Human-caused increases in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, chiefly carbon dioxide from fossil-fuel combustion, are the likely cause of contemporary climate change. Recent climate data will be presented along with evidence linking human energy usage to these changes.
