The Grace Abbott School of Social Work along with the College of Arts and Sciences and Nebraskans for Peace invite you to attend a discussion titled "Climate Change: National and Global Security" on Friday, Oct. 18, 2019 from 7 P.M. - 9 P.M. in 101 CPACS.
The discussion, presented by David Titley, Rear Admiral USN (ret.), Ph.D., Affiliate Professor, Penn State University, will cover some basic science and why mainstream climate scientists are very confident of their findings, how this challenge is being addressed, and the greatest challenges to national security that arise from climate change. In addition, this talk will address how to effectively talk about climate change through the use of analogies, plain, non-jargon English, and even a little humor. The discussion will conclude with an assessment of future challenges and opportunities regarding climate change, from science, policy, and political perspectives.
This event is free and open to the public, registration is not required. Free parking is available in the lot directly north of the clock tower (after 5:00 P.M.), as well as in the east and west garages all day (Lots E, D, J, U, or T only.)
