The Department of Chemical Engineering Spring 2008 Colloquium on Future Energy Sources, the Environment and the Economics will host Gavin Schmidt, guest lecturer, on Tuesday, February 26 at 11 a.m. in Foy 213. A researcher at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, N.Y., Schmidt will present "Climate Models, Climate Forcing and Climate Change." The university community is invited to attend this event.

The focus of the Colloquium on Future Energy Sources, the Environment and the Economics is to examine various aspects of these three topics and in particular their close interrelationships and highly interactive nature. Energy production and the associated environmental and economic impacts are of great importance, as they impact virtually every aspect of industrialized society, including national security issues and the potential for global climate change.
