Join us at our March meeting where longtime CNY Skeptics member Bryce Hand, Ph.D., will talk to us about climate change. Bryce is professor emeritus of geology at Syracuse University.

Here’s what he says about his presentation:

This contentious and politically charged issue involves several very important questions: (1) Is it happening? (2) If so, is it our fault? (3) Should we care? and (4) Is there anything we can do to reduce future warming, if in fact it seems to be a problem?

My response to every one of these questions is “Yes,” and I’ll try to show why thousands of scientists active in climate research agree. We’ll look at the historic (and geologically ancient) record, the physics driving “greenhouse” warming, and some implications few people are aware of, while addressing the usual counter-claims of deniers.
