Global climate change, which is almost universally accepted in the
scientific community, may have profound effects on this planet's
civilizations. Dr. Charles F. Kennel, a member of the National Academy of
Sciences, directed NASA's "Mission to Planet Earth," a study of natural
and human-induced changes to the planet. The experience led him to
dedicate his research to environmental science, and he subsequently served
as the Director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and as the Vice
Chancellor of Marine Sciences at the University of California, San Diego.
He is the founding director of the UCSD Environment and Sustainability
Initiative and leads the University of Cambridge/UCSD Global Water
Initiative. 

He will discuss the most current timelines and predictions for a changing
climate, and explain actions and adaptations necessary to confront this
truly global crisis on Wednesday, September 18 at the University of
Maryland. 

All are welcome, and students are particularly encouraged to attend.
Refreshments will be served at 4 pm in the Physics Lecture Hall (1412).
The talk will begin at 4:30 pm.
