The 2009-2010 Edwin Way Teale Lecture series kicks off tonight with “A Sober Look at Global Warming”

Kerry_Emanuel_TealeDr. Kerry Emanuel, Professor of Atmospheric Science and POAC Director at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will share his views on the latest developments regarding global warming and its effects on our society and others around the world. His article “Increasing destructiveness of tropical cyclones over the past 30 years,” in the publication Nature,  suggested future global and sea temperature warming may lead to an upward trend in tropical cyclone destructive potential, causing a substantial increase in hurricane-related losses to coastal populations in the twenty-first century.

We hope you’ll join us today at 4:00pm in Konover Auditorium.    More information about the 2009-2010 Edwin Way Teale Lecture Series
