Our spring meeting featured a prominent research scientist, Dr. Donald Wuebbles of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois. The event was a special science café event. There was an excellent turnout (129) including many college students. Dr. Wuebbles presented the data, showed the projections of his models, and listed some of the solutions to global warming. There were many good questions and the evening concluded with conversation and refreshments.
