Speaker: Global Climate Change
Global Climate Change: What Is It? How Will It Affect Us? Can We Reduce the Impact By Our Actions?
Dr. Andy Jorgensen
Associate Professor of Chemistry and Director of General Chemistry
University of Toledo
Climate change is a very intense topic, particularly given the fact that legislation on the problem is now pending in Congress. Background information about the phenomenon and methods which have been used to characterize these changes will be presented. The human dimension of the problem will be emphasized. The possible consequences of various scenarios will be explored. We will then consider solutions to the problem characterized as mitigation and adaptation strategies. Participants will be invited to present their suggestions and discuss the possible response of the general public to such ideas.
