Snacks and drinks will be available at 6:00PM and the program will start at 7:30. Professor Alex Hall of the UCLA Department of Atmospheric Sciences will speak on "Climate Change: The State of Current Knowledge."

Professor Hall has done extensive research on how much the earth's climate is currently changing and how much it might change in the future because of greenhouse gas emissions. He will indicate how best to take action to minimize the danger to our planet.
