Wednesday, April 27, 7-9 pm

To mark Earth Day 2016, one of the world's leading climatologists, Professor David Archer, geophysicist at the University of Chicago, will join us to explain the prediction of a recent study by an international group of climate scientists including James Hansen--that  
a dangerous rise of sea water, 1 meter or more, will occur within 50 to 100 years. This human-driven, planet-wide thaw will flood coastal areas across the globe and unleash superstorms--in the lifetime of children who are born today. 
 Read more and watch James Hanson's 15-minute video discussing his findings here.
