Climate expert to pay visit

The United States will elect its next president today and regardless of which candidate wins, environmental issues such as global warming and climate change will be major issues.

Kevin Trenberth, the head of climate analysis at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, will speak today at UH about global warming challenges the next presidential administration will face.

Trenberth, a native of New Zealand, has worked in meteorology and climatology since the early ’70s. Since then, he has worked for several scientific bodies, published on many topics and is highly cited for his work.

At the lecture, hosted by the Department of Physics, Trenberth will present a simple, evidence-based discussion on global warming. Trenberth will discuss evidence of man-made global warming and how the burning of fossil fuels can explain the planet’s rising temperatures. He will also take audience questions.

Trenberth will speak at 4 p.m. in the Science and Engineering Research and Classroom Complex, Room 102. The event is free and open to the public.
