Adventure Science Center invites you to join us for a series of informal discussions on current issues in science. Whether tackling how science can solve global problems or help us to understand how the universe works, these gatherings are NOT lectures. They are an opportunity for you to share your opinions, ideas and thoughts with other science lovers and to meet local scientists in a fun, casual setting. So grab a cup of coffee and let's chat! All Science Cafe events are free and open to the public.
Schedule: Join us on the third Thursday of each month from 7 to 8 p.m. Locations may vary.

Climate Change – The Evidence
Speaker: Chester T. Little, Ph.D., P.E., Austin Peay State University
Although we may experience an occasional “cool” summer or “cold” winter, a large number of “hot” records have been surpassed around the world in the last few years. Join us as we investigate the evidence for a cause-and-effect relationship to explain these phenomena, including the correlation of these changes to the release of anthropogenic greenhouse gases.
Dr. Little is currently Associate Professor and Director of the Chemical Engineering Technology Program at Austin Peay State University. Past appointments include serving as visiting professor at Tennessee Technological University and Operations Integrity Consultant and Project Manager for BP Alternative Energy. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Texas – Austin.
