NASA to Host Free Public Science Symposium on Climate Change

On Saturday, Nov. 12,[2011] scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., will join experts from UCLA, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the non- profit Kids vs. Climate Change to discuss climate change science, policy and action at the 3rd annual JPL Climate Change Symposium. The free symposium, "Empowering Action Through Climate Science Knowledge," is sponsored by JPL's Green Club and JPL Earth Science Public Engagement.

Experts will present the latest scientific findings on how climate change is affecting Earth's atmosphere, ocean, land and ice, presenting evidence from satellites and other data sources. The symposium will also outline specific steps individuals can take to help address this issue. The eight brief presentations will be followed by question-and-answer sessions. After the talks, audience members are invited to participate in a game of "Climate Jeopardy." The event will also be webcast live on JPL's Ustream channel at: http://www.ustream.tv/NASAJPL2 .
