Meteorologist Art Horn will be speaking at the Henry Carter Hull Library in Clinton on Monday, December 3, 2007 at 6:30 pm. His lecture “Global Warming: Fact or Fiction” covers the history of climate change, how carbon dioxide contributes to the greenhouse effect, and how media perceptions of global warming have changed in the past 30 years.

Horn, a hurricane-chaser and former weatherman for Hartford’s NBC 30, says, “I touch on issues like how we measure temperature and what problems there are with the measurements…then I move on to hurricanes and how and if they are affected by global warming.”

Ocean cycles, carbon dioxide, the greenhouse effect, hurricanes, and how the sun affects temperature will all be discussed at Horn’s lecture.

This event is open to the public and no registration is required.
