David Bush, professor of geology in the University of West Georgia’s Department of Geosciences, will present “Global Warming and Climate Change: Fact versus Fiction” on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 11 a.m. at UWG’s Ingram Library. The presentation is free and open to the public.
The question of whether the climate is changing has expanded beyond scientific circles to become a primary topic of political debate and a major point of contention in U.S. international relations. It has even been the subject of Hollywood feature films. The public has been left to wonder which parts of this debate are fact and which are fiction.
At center stage is the question of whether the natural cycles of warming and cooling have been changed by human beings in the past hundred years. Bush will seek to correct the misconceptions surrounding global warming and provide information that is useful in comprehending this major issue.
Special public parking is available in the Townsend Center gated lot, beginning at 10 a.m.
