CafeLitt 183: The warming Planet: Are we in danger?

Thu 9 Sep 2010, 19:00, by Majid Fekri, at Bistro Burritoville:3rd floor, 2055 Rue Bishop, Montreal,QC (Map)
The scientific definition of climate includes a very complex interaction between several dynamic systems that leads to a very delicate balance. Antropogenic, or human induced, climate change is a critical issue in science and in the affairs of humankind. The political heat of the debate has masked the scientific aspect of it from the public. Though the target of substantial research, the conclusions of climate change studies remain subject to numerous uncertainties. In this talk we present a very brief review of the basic arguments regarding anthropogenic climate change with particular emphasis on scientific uncertainty.

Majid is a third year PhD student of atmospheric and oceanic sciences at McGill university.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
