Purdue Calumet Hosts Global Warming Seminar

Purdue University Calumet is hosting a public seminar to examine global warming Wednesday, November 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Calumet Conference Center. The seminar will provide information on rising temperatures, melting polar ice caps and mosquitoes moving their habitats, as well as suggest ways people can combat global warming. The talk is titled "Global Warming: The Choice Is Ours."

The presenter is Richard Treptow, chemistry professor at Chicago State University, environmentalist, and member of the Sierra Club and the Union of Concerned Scientists. He will discuss actions individuals, industry and government can take to confront climate change.

This seminar is the third in the four-part series, Go with the Flow­Get to Know Your Coastal Resources. The series is intended to raise awareness about water quality- and quantity-related issues.

The series is being funded through a grant Purdue Calumet received from the Lake Michigan Coastal Program, a division of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Other sponsors are Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant, Indiana Lake Michigan Coastal Program and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

The Calumet Conference Center is located at the far south end of Purdue Calumet?s campus, one-third mile north of Interstate 80/94, three blocks east of Indianapolis Boulevard and south of 173rd Street.
