Title: 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? These are some of the questions we will address on the incredibly complex topic of climate change in any direction.
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. This topic has required tons of research just to scratch the surface. But, she says, 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.
