Is global warming real? DDATT talk Jan. 18

DEXTER — From 6 to 8 p.m. on the evening of Friday, Jan. 18, Grant Foster will present a talk at the Abbott Memorial Library on recent climate research and its implications for the planet.

Foster, a resident of Garland, is an accomplished author who is about to publish a book on statistics written for non-mathematicians.

He also runs the highly regarded OPEN MIND blog (under the name of Tamino), and has published important scientific papers in recent peer-reviewed journals, many of which have been cited by others doing climate research.

The presentation on Jan. 18 will cover planetary warming data in detail, showing why global temperatures have risen significantly and continue to do so, and explaining evidence that most or all of this observed warming is caused by human carbon emissions once all other possible factors have been considered. 

Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) is sponsoring Foster’s program, as part of DDATT’s mission to help develop local food, energy, and economic systems that support a community moving from dependence on fossil fuels.

Please contact Ed Hummel at 924-3836 (or at for more information on the program and/or on DDATT and its programs.
