Free Public Science Symposium on Climate Change

Free Public Science Symposium on Climate Change The temperature is rising on this thermometer.

October 20, 2009

JPL's Green Club is sponsoring a free public science symposium about climate change on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. at JPL. Earth scientists with expertise in the fields of atmosphere, ocean and ecology will present brief talks on the scientific evidence for global warming. Each of the seven JPL scientists' talks will run about 10 minutes. The final speaker will discuss what individuals and society can do to slow global warming.

Questions are encouraged; a question-and-answer period will be held at the end of the presentations.

This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome but the presentations will be geared to adults. The symposium will be held in JPL's von Karman Auditorium. Directions to the Lab can be found here: .
