VIMS presents a climate change lecture



VIMS After Hours Lecture Series will present “Climate Change (aka Global Warming): Is It Real or a Hoax?” on Thursday, June 5, at 7 p.m. at The Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in Gloucester Point.

The public is invited to join NASA scientist Bruce Wielicki as he examines the science and politics of global warming. Wielicki, a co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize as a contributing author to the latest IPCC Climate Change Report, will describe climate change past and present, as well as what researchers predict for the future. He will also discuss key uncertainties in climate change science, why controversy persists, and where to go for solid information.

There is no charge to attend; however, registration is required. For additional information on this or other lectures in the series, or to register, visit http://www.vims.edu/events or call 684-7846.
