 Global Warming
by Steven Clark, Biology Instructor Clark College

Understanding Global Warming means understanding carbon. Where does it come from? How does carbon cause warming?

It would seem like only the sun would cause climate warming, but that is not the case.  The chemistry is simpler to understand than you might have realized.  
As the earth warms, what are animal ecologists worried about with regard to birds?
*Changes in migration; * Disruption of prey species that birds depend on; * Disruption of co-evolved bird dependencies (e.g birds arriving and a plant has already matured). 
Join us to learn more and think more about this emerging significant issue  that will become even more pronounced in the near future.
