Upcoming Events on Global Warming

Two events sponsored by the Bell Museum of Natural History this month should add fuel to the ongoing discussion about global warming.

Filmed in eight countries on four continents, "The Great Warming" documentary features interviews with international experts on the subject of global warming. Narrated by Alanis Morissette and Keanu Reeves, the film shows on Thursday, September 7, at 7 p.m. in the Bell Auditorium. (Price: $7; $5 for students and members of the Bell Museum.)

A café scientifique conversation about the accuracy of global warming predictions will follow on Monday, September 11, at 6 p.m. in the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown, near the University of Minnesota campus. Titled "Global Climate Change: It's Getting Hot in Here!", the discussion's panelists will include Peter Ciborowski from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, Fresh Energy's Science Policy Director J. Drake Hamilton, and University of Minnesota Rhetoric professor and environmental historian Daniel Philippon. ($5 suggested donation.)

Two of this summer's most active "Science Buzz" blogs approached this heated topic by asking Have You seen Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth"? and examining Global Warming Skepticism.
