“Climate Change:  What Is It and What Can We Do About It?”

Dr. Andy Jorgensen to present at Adrian College on Tuesday, April 2

 

ADRIAN, Mich - The Adrian College Institute for Education is pleased to sponsor Dr. Andy Jorgensen, Associate Professor and Director of General Chemistry at the University of Toledo.  Dr. Jorgensen’s presentation is titled “Climate Change: What Is It and What Can We Do About It?” It is scheduled to take place at 6:00 p.m. in Knight Auditorium in Valade Hall.

 

This event, geared to an adult audience both in related and unrelated courses of study, is positioned to educate the audience of the causes and consequences of climate change and address various means for reducing the problem. The evening is certain to be both educational and engaging.

 

During the discussion, each participant will be given a personal response device to allow them to answer questions posed throughout the talk. Some of the questions will be factual in nature (e.g., temperature change over time, emissions of carbon dioxide per person), but most will be opinion questions (e.g., do you believe that the US should have more nuclear power).

 

Dr. Andrew Jorgensen is the Associate Professor Director of General Chemistry at the University of Toledo in Ohio. He has taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, the University of Southern Indiana and Allegheny College.  His area of research includes chemical education and climate change education.

 

Other professional accolades include: Washington Fellow, Council of Scientific Society Presidents, (1994-95); Councilor for Toledo Section, American Chemical Society, (2001-present); Senior Fellow, National Council for Science and the Environment, (2008-present); Editorial Board Member, Encyclopedia of Earth, (2008-present) and American Chemical Society Fellow, (2012-present).
