Meeting Room

Scientists agree that climate change is real, but not on what to do about it. Raymond Wiggers, author and scientist, will tell us our options and obligations to create a better future.

Raymond Wiggers, author of the popular guidebook "Geology Underfoot in Illinois", presents a richly illustrated lecture describing the greatest environmental dilemma of our time: that Global Warming is real and largely caused by human activity.To demonstrate this, Mr. Wiggers marshals compelling evidence from cutting-edge research in the fields of geology, oceanography, biology, and climatology. He then poses the most vital question rising from a frank acknowledgment of this looming disaster: is there anything, at this relatively late date, we can really do about it? The experts may be quite united in their identifying the problem, but they’re certainly not in how to rectify it. In this popular talk, Mr. Wiggers points out both the varying options and profound obligations that informed American citizens have to make the world a fit place to live for future generations.
