[ARCHIVED] Earth Plight: Global Warming; the Harsh Reality

Earth Plight: Global Warming the Harsh Reality

Thursday, October 12 at  4:00 p.m.— Earth Plight: Global Warming; the Harsh Reality

Global warming and climate change, while often used interchangeably, have different meanings. Global warming refers to increasing global temperatures believed by most climate scientists to be a result of human activities, primarily fossil-fuel burning that result in an increase in greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. Climate change refers to changes in the earth’s climate that are the likely result of rising temperatures.

The solution and the harsh reality are also uncovered as the Earth plunges toward an unknown future and humanity’s learning continues. This presentation will explain how we got to this point in human history and what solutions are possible to reverse the harmful effects of global warming.
