Campus Examines Climate Change
"This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about a topic that has an ever-increasing influence on every aspect of our daily lives," says Dr. Carla Koretsky, associate dean of the Lee Honors College and professor of geosciences and environmental studies.
Beginning in January, Western Michigan University will feature a series of multidisciplinary talks and discussions focused on climate change—free and open to the public.
Fourteen lectures will discuss climate change from different angles including such topics as anticipated effects on ecosystems, emerging diseases, socioeconomic and geopolitical implications, and more.
Climate Change: Scientific, Socioeconomic and Policy Perspectives is the Lee Honors College's 2013 Lyceum Lecture Series, and will feature a diverse group of WMU facility members from disciplines such as geosciences, chemistry, sociology, political science, and several others.
The series kicks off on Wednesday, January 9 with Dr. David Karowe, professor of biological sciences, discussing Anthropogenic Climate Change: Past, Present and Future.
