April 2013 Meeting

In April, UCLA Professor William Newman will speak on Climate Change.

Presently, humans introduce more than 32,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere each year; Americans are responsible (in per capita terms) for 20 tons per person. We will review how people have brought this about and the consensus among 97% of climate experts that global climate change is real and due to humans.

Dr. Newman is Professor of Earth and Space Sciences and has worked on environmental issues around the globe. He has published over 100 peer reviewed scientific papers and 3 books.
