SUBJECT: Global warming subject of upcoming public lecture

DATE: Jan. 6

Global warming caused by human activities presents a serious challenge to human societies. But in that challenge lies an opportunity to do things better, to unleash a new era of creativity, improve the stewardship of our natural environment, and revitalize our economy while generating new, cleaner industrial activity.
            That’s the theme of an upcoming public lecture taking place at Memorial University and hosted by the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS). Dr. Thomas F. Pedersen, executive director of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions at the University of Victoria, will be the guest lecturer for the 2011 CMOS tour, with the lecture taking place at 7 p.m. on
Jan. 11 in the Inco Innovation Centre, room IIC-2001.
