Global warming is a subject that causes people to ask a lot of questions. Join OSU Extension in Coshocton County as we host Dr. Tom Blaine, OSU Associate Professor, on Thursday, November 29, 2018 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. who will share the history and trends of climate change. This program will be held at the Frontier Power Community Room located at 770 South 2nd Street in Coshocton, OH 43812
Learn what it means for your garden, woodlot or farm through the year 2050. Dr. Blaine will answer share the difference between global and climate change and walk participants through a historical timeline. Dr. Blaine’s presentation will help address some of the most popular questions about global warming including:
- “Hasn’t Earth been much warmer than it is now for most of its history? If that is true (and it is), then why worry about a few degrees warming in the next 50-100 years?”
- “Isn’t it likely that the warming is natural and not caused by humans at all?”
- “Hasn’t global temperature always fluctuated? After all, the glacial grooves at Kelley’s Island prove that Ohio was once covered with ice. Something caused that global cooling, and when the ice age ended, something caused massive global warming – and none of it was humans. So why the concern about global warming now?”
There is no fee to attend this program and it is open to all! Courtesy reservations are requested so program materials can be prepared. Call the Coshocton County Extension office 740-622-2265 to make your reservation or for more details.
