Hi Cathy,

I work at Columbia University with a Master's program in
Climate and Society. Graduate students in this program are
doing a series of lectures at public libraries. Would you mind
sharing this with your members?

Thanks,
Arezou Raeisghasem
Assistant Director
[address removed]

Date: Monday, December 1st
Time: 6:00-7:00pm
Location: Morningside Heights Public Library
900 Broadway at W. 113th St. New York, NY
Title: "Breaking the Ice: Carbon, Climate, and Change"
Description: Join four Columbia University graduate students in
a facilitated workshop about understanding climate change. Find
out how scientists know the story of Earth's climate. Also
learn some skills for interpreting and discussing the science
behind climate change.

Date: Thursday, December 4th
Time: 7:30-8:30pm
Location: Chappaqua Public Library
195 South Greeley Ave, Chappaqua, NY
Title: "How Certain Can We Be About Climate Change?"
Description: The presentation will address greenhouse gases and
aerosols, their relative impacts on the climate system, the
uncertainties in estimating these impacts, and how much we can
attribute to human activities.

Date: Tuesday, December 9th
Time: 7:00-8:00pm
Location: White Plains Public Library
100 Martine Ave, White Plains, NY
Title: What's the Big Deal about One Degree?
Description: Climate change over the 21st century will not be
the same everywhere. This presentation will discuss how a small
change in global average temperature can result in differing,
sometimes dramatic, regional effects, particularly in the case
of precipitation changes.

Date: Thurs. Dec 11
Time: 6:00-7:00pm
Location: Bloomingdale Public Library
150 W 100th St., New York, NY
Title: Did 'we' do that? Natural and man-made causes of climate
change
Description: One common "myth" about climate change is that
natural variations in the climate system explain the changes we
are seeing today, and that human contributions are minor or
nonexistent. This presentation will discuss major sources of
natural climate variability and explain how we know that
anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases are contributing to
current changes in the climate.
