Please join us for our Nov. 14 public education event at Terra State Community College:
Noted Climate Change Educator to Speak at Terra State Community College
Terra State Community College will host Dr. Andy Jorgensen, Wednesday, November 14, 7:00 pm, in the Neeley Center for a presentation entitled: “Global Climate Disruption: How do we know? What can we do?”
Dr. Jorgensen is Associate Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Toledo and a Senior Fellow at the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE).
The presentation will give background information about the climate change phenomenon and methods which have been used to characterize these changes. The human dimension of the problem and possible solutions will be emphasized.
Participants will be able to share their views using personal response devices and to compare their replies to those of more than 10,000 members of Dr. Jorgensen’s previous audiences.
Dr. Jorgensen developed climate change curricular materials which are included in a web repository of over 300 resources hosted by NCSE. His work on climate change education has been supported by grants from NASA and NSF.
Jorgensen has received a University of Toledo Outstanding Teaching Award and was twice appointed as a Master Teacher in the College of Arts and Sciences.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. The event is cosponsored by Terra State Community College and People for Peace & Justice Sandusky County.
Our first meeting of the new year is January 17th, starting with a 6:30 pm potluck at First UCC, 1500 Tiffin Rd., Fremont.
