Bellarmine Climate Change Symposium is Tomorrow

Tomorrow is Bellarmine University's climate change symposium.

The day-long event (9 am to 3 pm) will feature a presentation by University of Louisville climatologist Keith Mountain, who will talk about his research on receeding glaciers. The keynote speaker is Gavin Schmidt, who's a climate scientist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies. There's also a workshop for K-12 educators, an interactive teleconference from the NASA JetPropulsion Laboratory’s Center for Climate Sciences, and a panel discussion on the biological effects of climate change.

The event is free and open to the public.

Earlier today, I interviewed NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt. The interview will air on Monday, during Morning Edition, Here and Now, and All Things Considered, and I'll put a version on the web, too.
