Richard Kerr – Global Warming
Posted on December 5th
Last week, no meeting due to Thanksgiving. The week before we had the honor to welcome Richard Kerr – to address the topics on Global Warming.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its fifth report in two decades on the science of climate change, a.k.a. global warming. The report largely said what it said in its 2007 report but with more confidence: Global warming is real, we humans are behind it, and it’s going to get worse, much worse if we don’t do something to rein it in. There were a few relative bright spots, such as extreme weather like hurricanes and floods not yet being noticeably worsened by global warming, but that is small comfort.
