Dr. Michael Mann

Chestnut Hill College’s Institute for Religion and Sciences welcomes Dr. Michael Mann, distinguished professor of meteorology and director of Earth System Science Center, at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19, at Commonwealth Chateau, SugarLoaf Campus.

Mann will deliver the lecture “Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change.” This lecture will begin with a review of the now-solid evidence for human influence on the climate of recent decades. Such evidence includes instrumental measures available for the past two centuries, paleoclimate observations spanning more than a millennium, and comparisons of the predictions from computer models with observed patterns of climate change.

The lecture will then address likely future impacts of human-induced climate change including possible influences on sea level rise, severe weather and water supply. The lecture will conclude with a discussion of solutions to the climate change problem.

This lecture is free and open to the public.

Contact Kathleen Duffy, SSJ, Ph.D. at 215-248-7197 or kduffy@chc.edu for more information.

    This seems like a great event. I’m curious, what does climate change have to do with religion?

    • iggy

      It’s the new religion. Idiot Frauds who can’t read a Bible will fall for anything.

  • Mark Brewer

    “Institute for Religion and Sciences” Now THAT’S a contradiction.

    • iggy

      Nope. The perfect stupid people that do as their told for the new fake religion based on fake science. The head Parrots of fabricated non-sense from proven facts are the Generals. Don’t ignore that the worthless fool Pope backed this crap too.

    This guy is a junk scientist. His ‘hockey stick’ has been totally discredited and he was caught up in those climategate emails a few years ago essentially admitting massaging the data to produce the desired result. He’s also now suing a climate-skeptic journalist for defamation for questioning his work…guess he has pretty thin skin. Would be fun to watch him squirm if anyone asked him pointedly about any of these things during the Q&A session. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hockey_stick_controversy
