TOPIC: Out of the Frying Pan into the ... Freezer?
Summary: Back in the seventies, there was talk of the earth's climate being in an interglacial period. Mention was even made of a new ice age. By the nineties, that talk was all gone. Everything was heat, heat heat. So what happened to the likelihood of another ice age? How does that square with the problem of global warming? Does the heat cancel the potential cooling Where is global warming right now...and global cooling? These are some of the questions we will address on this incredibly complex topic.
SPEAKERS: Milo and Cynthia Schield are board members of CTC and frequent contributors to our programs. Milo has a PhD in physics and many years of teaching statistics. He is a full professor in the Business Department of Augsburg College. His wife, Cynthia, is a Stanford alumna who has finally found a use for her major in history. Although "Earth History" goes a little farther back than one usually studies.
This topic has required tons of research just to scratch the surface. But, they say, it has been fascinating effort. In the last twenty to thirty years, science has made huge strides in understanding how the earth works and the Schields hope to share some of that information with us.
