American Chemical Society to hold forum on climate change on Aug. 23
Date:8/3/2010

and explores alternative strategies for more sustainable development in the United States and others developed countries.

James McCarthy, Ph.D., of Harvard University, who will discuss the observed global impact of climate changes, the context in which these changes are occurring, and projections for the future. He'll also discuss the socioeconomic impact of these changes including regional impacts on agriculture, fisheries, human health, etc. and will describe how current research might help decisions aimed at preventing and/or adapting to climate change. McCarthy, one of the leading experts on global climate change, has focused his oceanographic studies on regions that are strongly affected by seasonal and inter-annual variation in climate.

John Christy, Ph.D., of the University of Alabama in Huntsville, who will describe evidence from the climate record indicating that the "greenhouse effect" the warming due to gases emitted by human activity is overestimated. He will also discuss evidence that regulations designed to impact human climate change are ineffective. Christy currently builds climate data sets, using information from satellites and other monitoring sources, to study how climate has changed and why.

Robert Socolow, Ph.D., Princeton University, who will provide a summary of a new study underway that examines major issues related to global climate change, with a focus on how climate change affects the United States and actions the nation can take to respond to this problem. The new study, America's Climate Choices, is being conducted by the National Research Council of the National Academies. Socolow's current research focuses on global carbon management, including the capture of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels and its storage.
