October 27: Climate Change:
Insights From an Expert
Scientists have agreed for decades that the planet’s climate is changing. But without sufficient data, some scientists said they couldn’t link with certainty, the effects of global warming with their causes, natural or manmade. The United Nations Climate Report, released in mid-August, now removes any doubt about who or what is responsible for global warming. Dr. Alan Mix, a distinguished professor of earth, ocean, and atmospheric sciences at Oregon State University, was one of the lead authors of the chapter on oceans. Professor Mix will meet with the club on October 26 to discuss the report’s findings and the impact they will have on us and future generations.
