Climate Change Past & Present

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Join geologist Ray Wiggers for a look at climate change. To what extent is our one species changing the climate in the twenty-first century?

Wiggers will present a surprising look at our planet’s dramatic, 4.6-billion-year history---through the lens of ancient and modern climate change, as revealed by geologic, biologic and atmospheric research. While much of modern scientific inquiry justly focuses on the challenges posed by human-induced global warming in the 21-st century, we now understand that the Earth has repeatedly veered from greenhouse to ice house conditions long before humanity evolved.
