Lecture looks at climate change
March 7, 2012
“Our Changing Seas: Climate Change” lecture will be presented at 5:30-7:30 p.m. March 22 at the Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences, 291 Country Club Drive, Incline Village.
Dr. Howard Spero, UC Davis, will explore the basic science of the Earth’s climate system, and examine the natural cycles of climate change in Earth history that we have discovered through the study of glacial ice sheets and deep ocean cores. From the lessons we have learned about the past, he hopes to demystify the realities of phenomena such as ocean (and Lake Tahoe) acidification and the potential for a warmer Earth in the not too distant future.
A no-host bar begins at 5:30 p.m. the lecture starts at 6 p.m. A $5 donation requested.
