On Friday, February 5th at 7:00 p.m. renowned climatologist Dr. James Hansen will be presenting his new book, Storms of My Grandchildren: The Truth about the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York.
Coined the father of climate science, Hansen is the director of NASA's Goddard Institute of Space Studies. More than 30 years ago he created one of the first climate models, Model Zero, which he used to accurately predict warming scenarios in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. His Congressional testimonies propelled the issue of global climate change into the public and policy discourse.
