Climatologist to Speak at Truman April 16

Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, will host Alan Robock, a professor of climatology from Rutgers, in a public lecture at 7:30 p.m. April 16 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room.

Robock is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society and President of the Atmospheric Sciences Section of the American Geophysical Union. He has been a researcher in the area of climate change for more than 30 years. Robock will be speaking on “Climatic Consequences of Nuclear Conflict-Nuclear Winter is Still a Threat,” a most timely topic given the current expansion of nuclear capabilities across nations.

Robock will also be speaking at A.T. Still University at 12 p.m. April 16 in the Mehegan classroom. His topic will be “Smoke and Mirrors: Is Geoengineering a Solution to Global Warming?”

Prior to the evening lecture Sigma Xi will sponsor its annual Spring Banquet and Awards Ceremony in the Student Union Building Activities Room. A social at 5:30 p.m. will be followed by dinner at 6 p.m.
