PLEASE NOTE: The date for this class has changed from Sept 21 to Oct 12, 2021.
Date: October 12, 2021
Schedule: Tuesday, 6:30pm - 8:00pm
This session begins with a brief refresher of the science of greenhouse gasses, then dives into the scientific method and the peer review process which are the mechanisms by which humans have come to understand global warming (as well as the science of human health, the science that helped us win WWII, and the science of internal combustion engines and other labor saving devices). Once we understand these processes by which humans gain knowledge, we'll ask, "why then is there debate over global warming?" We'll examine scientists' views as well as public opinion over the decades. Again, we'll also present a very short preview of the solutions, for those who aren't able to attend Session 3.
