Post arrest, Dr. James Hansen talks global warming
Dr. James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Space Center and the nation’s top climate scientist, will speak in Claremont this Sunday, February 24, at 7 p.m. The free lecture takes place at the Claremont United Methodist Church, 211 W. Foothill Blvd.
Dr. Hansen provides insight into climate change with his lecture “Global Warming Is Here. It is Worse than it Looks. But there is a Way Out.” Dr. Hansen is the primary scientific figure behind last Sunday’s anti-Keystone XL Pipeline demonstrations across the country, which in Washington, DC, drew between 45,000 to 50,000 demonstrators as well as several thousand in downtown Los Angeles.
Dr. Hansen’s talk will be the first of the lecture series “Agenda for Prophetic Faith,” a project of Progressive Christians Uniting (PCU), sponsored by a number of Pomona Valley religious congregations. For more information on this series, visit www.agendaforapropheticfaith.com.
