“The Global Environment and Climate Change”

Watch the program here.

Humanity must collectively come to terms with the fact that global climate change has already arrived. The question that must now be answered is what can mankind do about it? Jerry Schnoor, who holds the Henry S. Allen Chair of Engineering at the University of Iowa, will discuss the latest data on global climate change, and what the international community’s response to such information must be.

University of Iowa professor Jerry Schnoor co-founded the Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research (CGRER) in 1990. The Center promotes interdisciplinary research on the many aspects of global environmental change. Areas of focus include regional effects on natural ecosystems, environments, and resources, and effects on human health, culture, and social systems.

In addition to his work with the CGRER, Schnoor has also served on the Iowa Climate Change Advisory Council (ICCAC), testified before Congress to support the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990 and serves as the editor-in-chief of Environmental Science & Technology. His areas of research include carbon sequestration, water quality modeling, phytoremidiation, and the causes of global warming.
