'Climate Change: What We Know, What We Expect' with Dr. John Abraham!

Dr. Abraham is a thermal sciences professor at the University of St. Thomas.  Recently, he became internationally known for debunking the world’s leading climate change skeptic at the time, Christopher Monckton.  After the debunking, Monckton threatened Dr. Abraham with legal action and mounted a publicity campaign against his university.  Despite this, Abraham, and his university stood firm and now are recognized as major international players in climate change. (For details on Dr. Abraham’s rebuttal go to http://www.stthomas.edu/engineering/jpabraham/)

Currently, Dr. Abraham works with various organizations to improve our understanding of the climate.  He helps the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration measure ocean temperatures.  He also leads projects to provide clean renewable fuels to the developing world.  His aim is to provide sound scientific understanding of climate change so that we can make informed decisions to deal with this growing problem.
In his presentation at the Humanists of MN chapter meeting, we will learn about his work and the state of our knowledge regarding climate change.

Dr. Abraham teaches and performs research in the area of thermal sciences. Among his specialties are ocean monitoring of climate change and the development of clean and renewable energy technologies for the developing world. He is an expert reviewer for the forthcoming Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. He has published approximately 150 journal papers and conference presentations. ◙

    IT IS ALWAYS A DAY WORTH REMEMBERING WHEN AN EXPERT IS AVAILABLE TO GIVE US THE TRUTH OF A SUBJECT AS IMPORTANT AS THIS.

    WHY IS IT THAT SOME WON'T LISTEN TO SCIENCE?
