How well do you understand the science of climate change? Recent research shows that most people have a minimal understanding of the ins and outs of this important issue. In an effort to bring about awareness and increase scientific literacy on this topic, The University of Pittsburgh’s University Honors College (UHC) has initiated a series of lectures to educate students, faculty and staff, as well as others in the Pittsburgh community. To bring this series to a wider community audience, they are partnering with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and the National Aviary.

The next lecture will feature Dr. Raymond S. Bradley, University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Geosciences and Director of the Climate Change Research Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Dr. Bradley will speak about The Science and Politics of Global Warming on Wednesday, October 2nd at 2:00 pm in the Carnegie Lecture Hall at the Carnegie Museums. Immediately after Professor Bradley’s lecture and adjacent to it, the UHC is hosting an informational fair of local non-profit and student organizations working on issues pertaining to climate change.  Their hope is that lecture attendees can connect with groups working on these very important activities and engage in the work going on in the region.
