Longer heat waves. Rising sea levels. Stronger hurricanes. More intense droughts. An ice-free summer in the Arctic Ocean by 2050.
That’s what future generations can expect as the effects of global warming, accelerated by heat-trapping gasses like methane and carbon dioxide, continue to alter weather patterns around the world.
James Hansen, Ph.D., a leading climate change researcher and Tom Skilling, WGN-TV’s chief meteorologist, will take an in-depth look at this phenomenon and discuss potential efforts to reduce its impact when they visit Benedictine University on Thursday, April 21.
Hansen will present “Energy and Climate Change: How Can Justice be Achieved for Young People?” at 7:00 p.m. in the Goodwin Hall Auditorium. Skilling will serve as the event’s moderator and emcee. The event is free and open to the public, however seating is limited.
