“What is Climate Change and Why Should I Care?” at the South Branch of the Peabody Library
The South Branch is pleased to welcome Dr. Jeremy Shakun as he demystifies climate change. Climate change is mentioned frequently in the news media, but what is it exactly and how does it affect us? Dr. Shakun will be here to take his scientific expertise and relay it to attendees in plain, understandable language. His talk will cover what climate change is, how it affects us, both globally and locally, and what can be done about it.
Dr. Jeremy Shakun is a geologist teaching as an Assistant Professor at Boston College and working to understand the behavior of our global climate change system. His research works towards a holistic, big-picture view of global change, and he has a passion for communicating scientific ideas to those of us not well-versed in scientific principles.
The program is free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration is required. This program will take place at the South Branch of the Peabody Institute Library, which is located at 78 Lynn St., on Thursday, May 4 at 7 p.m. For more information and to register for this program, please go to www.peabodylibrary.org, call 978-531-3380 or stop by in person.
