Feb 28th 2014 Forum Meeting - Climate Change: the Science and the Spin

7:00pm - MENSA FORUM

  Climate Change: the Science and the Spin, by Ken G. Sweat, PhD.

 For over a century the scientific community has known that human activities, especially the production of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, can alter the earth’s climate. Every nation’s scientific academy and over 98% of working climate scientists support this theory. The science of the greenhouse effect and the arguments of its detractors will be examined. We will conclude by investigating the current actions by governments to slow climate change as well as suggestions for how individuals can help. Dr. Sweat received his bachelor's degree from Claremont McKenna College and his master's & doctorate from ASU. Location: Granite Reef Senior Center, room 1 cafeteria, 1700 N Granite Reef Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85257.

Questions: Contact The Forum Coordinator, Greg Pitz, [masked]

9:00 pm approx. - POST-FORUM DEBRIEFING. After the Forum, we will adjourn to the New China Gate Restaurant 7730 East McDowell Road #111, Scottsdale, AZ (480) 990-3388. We will partake in interesting conversation and good food.  Many of our speakers are able to join us for continued discussion.

    All the nonsense about past and future physical "pole shifts" on the internet really gets me angry. The real pole shift is the switch between the North and South MAGNETIC Poles. This will be completed within the next thousand years and is going on right now as vast magma currents move beneath the Earth's crust.

    It is not an extinction level event. While it is true that there might be a hundred year (?) period when the surface would be directly exposed to gamma radiation from space, this does not mean all life will vanish on Earth.

    However, there is some evidence that Antarctica was not always covered by vast ice sheets. If so, can this change at the South Pole be attributed to continental drift or is it too recent too allow such an explanation?
