Raymond Pierrehumbert on "Global Climate Change" March 29 at LSTC February 27, 2007

Leading University of Chicago geophysicist Raymond Pierrehumbert will speak on "Global Climate Change: What is Happening and What We Can Do About It," in the 2007 Religion and Ecology Lecture at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago on Thursday, March 29, 2007 from 7:00-8:30 pm in the Common Room (350). The lecture is free and open to the public.

Dr. Pierrehumbert, Louis Block Professor in Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago, was lead author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Third Assessment Report. He works on climate change locally as a member of Mayor Daly's Task Force on Climate Change, and he writes the award-winning RealClimate.org climate science blog. His research explores how climates work as systems, and it involves comparative analyses of Earth's climate and the climates of other planets in our solar system.
