The OLLI-UM’s “Science of Climate Change” – Classroom Series

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Michigan (OLLI-UM) is sponsoring a classroom series on the science of climate change that starts on Wednesday, February 4 and continues to March 18.

From the website: Would you like to have a better understanding of the science of one of the most important issues in our times? This class will cover the physical influences that determine the earth’s climate and are responsible for past and current climate change, and the science behind our knowledge of past climates and our ability to predict future change. In each class we will view two 30-minute lectures, followed by discussion and updates from the latest climate reports. The study group leader spent 34 years as a research physicist at Ford and Argonne National Laboratory. His work included modeling of the climate-change effects of plug-in hybrid vehicles.


This event is for people ages 50+ and will be instructed by Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics co-organizer, Craig Stephan.  And the location is Genesis of Ann Arbor.
