It’s Hot, Hot, Hot at the Secret Science Club on Wednesday, August 1

GLOBAL WARMING EXPERT WILLIAM SCHLESINGER HEATS UP THE JOINT AT 8 PM
One of the nation’s most prominent scientists on the subject of climate change and the new president of the Institute of Ecosystem Studies, biogeochemist William Schlesinger lectures on the “role and response of forests in a future warmer world.”

The author or co-author of over 180 scientific papers, Dr. Schlesinger has been investigating the link between environmental chemistry and global climate change for over 30 years.

Dr. Schlesinger asks: Is the human species on a collision course with Earth? How does global warming affect different ecosystems? How much CO2 can the world’s forests actually hold? And what can we do to reduce our impact on the environment?
