A special talk for children and families. All are welcome!

Dr. Hind al Abadleh & Let’s Talk Science

The presentation “What Every Citizen of Earth should know about the Atmosphere” covers key historical environmental crises since the industrial revolution that led to the birth of nature conservation and environmental movements.  In particular, acid rain, its chemistry and how it was solved, the ozone hole, its chemistry and recovery progress to date, and climate change, the greenhouse effect and humanity’s influence in amplifying that effect that are leading to numerous impacts on countries, species, individuals.  Finally, the role of human societies in mitigating climate change.
