EBC Seminar – Global Climate Change – A Primer

September 12, 2006 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Over the past century, Earth’s average temperature has increased by approximately 1 degree Fahrenheit.  There is now strong evidence that this global warming is largely due to human emissions of greenhouse gases from a growing fossil fuel economy.  Unless these emissions are checked, additional warming of 2-10 degrees is projected by the end of the 21st century.

  • What is known of the science of climate change

  • What actions need to be initiated to address climate change
