Spring 2013 Athenæum Series: Carbon Footprints and Climate Change

Spring 2013 Athenæum Series: Carbon Footprints and Climate Change
April 17th, 2013, noon in Kent Library Sadie’s Place. Presented by Dr. Steve Overmann

A Carbon Footprint is a quantitative estimate of the amount of carbon dioxide (C02) released due to the activities of an individual, organization, or society. Carbon Footprint analyses are important because CO2 emissions are the primary driving force behind global climate change. The Carbon Footprints of humans, the United States, Southeast Missouri State Unversity, and individuals will be considered, as well as steps that can be taken to reduce CO2 emissions. Recent scientific reports regarding climate change will be summarized.

The event is open to all and refreshments will be served.
