Nobel Prize-Winner Dr. Henry Pollack Discusses His New Book 'A World Without Ice"
Wednesday November 18, 2009: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
Dr. Henry Pollack will discuss his new book, 'A World Without Ice,' the first book to fully explore the connection between humans and climate change. Much has been written about global warming, but the crucial relationship between what effect people have had on the Earth's ice and its ramifications has received little focus until now.
Dr. Pollack has been a professor of geophysics at the University of Michigan for more than forty years, and shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with fellow members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former vice president Al Gore. The event will include a book signing and books will be on sale.
