Franklin Institute Hosts Global Warming Demystified Presentation May 14 In Philadelphia

The Franklin Institute will host a Global Warming Demystified presentation on May 14 by Dr. Jeffrey Bennett, an Astrophysicist and educator, starting at 8:00 p.m. at the Institute located at 271 North 21st Street in Philadelphia.
Is human-induced global warming real or a hoax? Most people will express an opinion on this question, but relatively few can back their opinions with solid evidence.
This is true on both sides, as most “believers” are no better able to explain the scientific case for global warming than “skeptics” are able to make a case against it.
Many times we’ve even heard politicians and media pundits say “I am not a scientist” to avoid the issue altogether. But the truth is, the basic science is not that difficult.
In this presentation, Dr. Bennett will give you the foundation you need to speak intelligently about the science behind global warming, and show you why the solutions to this important problem are ones that people of all political persuasions can agree on.
If you have any questions or doubts about the reality of global warming or what we should do about it as a nation, you’re sure to come away enlightened. The level is suitable for anyone of middle school age and up.
The talk is based on Dr. Bennett's global warming primer.
Dr. Bennett’s presentation is part of the Night Skies programs on May 14 for adults and  families from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Click Here for more information and to purchase tickets.
