Dr. Kim Scipes presents:
Climate Change: Understanding and then Going “Outside the Box” for a Solution
Climate change is a real thing, caused by human beings. Humans have thrown more carbon dioxide and related chemicals into the atmosphere than at any time in the last 800,000 years. Dr. Scipes asserts that failure to significantly reduce these “greenhouse gas” will result in the beginning of extinction of humans, animals and many plants by the year 2100. He will discuss this and related issues, and will propose a plan for addressing these problems that goes far beyond any developed program to date.
