Attend the 3rd Annual Climate Change Symposium at JPL
October 28, 2011
The JPL Green Club and Earth Science Public Engagement will host the 3rd annual JPL Climate Change Symposium, "Empowering Action Through Climate Science Knowledge." This free event is open to the public and there is no need to register, but seating is limited. The event will also be streamed live on the web.
Experts from JPL, UCLA, and the Union of Concerned Scientists will discuss climate change science and climate change policy. On the agenda are JPL climate scientists Annmarie Eldering, Josh Fisher, Ron Kwok and Jorge Vazquez, and staff members Kevin Hussey and Laura Tenenbaum. Climate policy and action will be discussed by Cara Horowitz (UCLA Emmett Center), Amanda Alvord (Union of Concerned Scientists), and 17-year-old Alec Loorz (Kids vs. Global Warming). Each of the eight brief presentations will be followed by a question and answer session. An optional short "Climate Jeopardy" contest will be held at the end of the program.
Date: Saturday, November 12
Time: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
