The consensus is in: Evidence supporting human induced climate change

Thu., Jan. 16, 2020 7:00 p.m.

Location: Bushwakker Brewpub

Dr. Britt Hall will present three lines of evidence supporting the
scientific consensus that our global climate is changing in response to
increased greenhouse gas emissions released by human activities. The
overarching goal of her talk is to provide concerned citizens with
information that will help them to be confident participating in actions
supporting our climate.

Admission is free but limited to 50 people. The main floor opens at 5:00
PM; once it reaches capacity the basement clubroom will open. Avoid
disappointment and come down early for dinner and a pint before the
presentation, which begins at 7:00 PM.

Dr. Hall's lecture is part of the regular offerings of the Science Pubs Series,
hosted monthly by the Faculty of Science at Bushwakker's, and is also the
first talk in the upcoming Academics for Climate Community Series that
aims to make academic research accessible to the public. This event will
be filmed for posting on the University of Regina's YouTube channel.
