Speaker to address climate issues

Northern Michigan University’s Center for Student Enrichment Office will sponsor a Skill Builder titled “Theu711 Climateu711 Movementu711 -u711 Whatu711 it is,u711 Whou711 itu711 is,u711 andu711 Whereu711 It’su711 Going” on Wednesday, Feb. 13 from 7:30 to 9 p.m in. The Skill Builder will offer a good opportunity for participants to learn about responsible energy solutions, as well as find out what they can do at an individual level, said Betsy Ott, one of the event’s presenters. Ott also said she emphasized how important it is for society to understand the impact of global warming. “[Global warming] is something that affects all aspects of society,” she said. “It would be extremely irresponsible not to be educated about its effects.” Ott added global warming influences everything people do; from the way they live, to what they eat, to where they build their houses. Students who attend can expect a well educated seminar on climate change as a whole, Ott said. The seminar will include an overview on the science of global warming, what different organizations, including our government, are doing to combat climate change and what individuals can do to be environmentally responsible. The Skill Builder will take place in the Back Room of the University Center. Everyone is welcome to attend, but those interested must register in advance. Contact Janet at 227-1771 or e-mail [email protected] to register. There is no cost to attend.
