Oct 2: Climate change lecture

The Science and Politics of Global Warming

The University Honors College (UHC) initiated a Climate Change Series of lectures this past spring to educate students, faculty and staff, as well as others in the Pittsburgh community about the science involved in climate change predictions and how we all might deal effectively with the unfolding situation. We are very pleased that the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, and the National Aviary are collaborating with us to bring this program to a wider Pittsburgh audience.

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 p.m. in the Carnegie Lecture Hall at the Carnegie Museums.  The Carnegie Lecture Hall can be accessed from the portal entrance located at the back of the museum and parking lot. Follow the posted signs to the event.  Click HERE to reserve your free spot at the lecture today.  For information on reserving space for a group of 10 or more, contact climate@pitt.edu.

Immediately after Professor Bradley’s lecture, the Honors College is hosting an informational fair of local non-profit and student organizations working on issues pertaining to climate change.  Our hope is that lecture attendees can connect with groups working on these very important activities and engage in the work going on in our region.  If you have any suggestions to share directly, please do not hesitate to contact us at climate@pitt.edu
