“Saving Civilization: The Fight Against Devastating Climate Change"

A Talk by Dr. Steven A. Leibo

Thursday, March 31

The Sage Colleges
Bush Memorial Hall
Troy Campus
7:30 pm

Caught between the trauma of the economic crash of 2008 and short term challenges from revolutions in the Mideast to the impending presidential campaign of 2012, Americans seem to have forgotten that infinitely more existential challenge  that threatens our very existence as a community; the emerging climate crisis caused by humanity’s having accidentally upset the heat balance of the entire earth.

Dr. Leibo will update the audience on the science of man made climate change, the already emerging catastrophes associated with that destabilization, from devastating storms to crop failures, and offer a “score cord” on the likelihood of humanity successfully navigating our way through this challenge.  

Talk sponsored by the Sage Department of History & Society & The Sage Climate Crisis Center.
