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.
