There will be a FREE physics lecture, ” Contemporary climate change as seen through data,” given by Ralph J. Cicerone, President of the National Academy of Sciences and Chair of the National Research Council, at 6:00 PM, WEDNESDAY, July 25, at Paepcke Auditorium, behind the Music Tent. The planetary energy budget of Earth underlies the state of Earth’s climate and of changes to it. Today, climatic change is being driven by global changes in the chemical composition of the atmosphere and the greenhouse effect of these observed composition changes. Professor Cicerone will present data demonstrating this increased greenhouse effect. Because the observed increases of greenhouse gas concentrations are due to human activities, concern over human-caused climate change has a firm physical basis.
