MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Tech presents “Climate Change 2008: What’s New, What’s Known and What People Think,” a free public lecture to be held Friday, April
25, 4 to 5 p.m. The lecture will be on campus, in the Skurla Aeronautics Building, Room 110.
The presenter is Robert Henson, editor of UCAR (University Corporation for Atmospheric Research) Quarterly newsletter. He will discuss the current state of
climate change and the public’s perception of science. He also will address some of the main arguments and misunderstandings raised by climate-change
skeptics, and the political and scientific developments that may be expected in the next year or two. The talk will offer an overview of how climate change
is being presented to the general public, including areas of scientific agreement as well as key question marks.
Henson will sign his book, Rough Guide to Climate Change, following the presentation.
